    I have been using my Foldscope a lot since about a year now. Two of the magnetic couplers in the kit have started breaking. The magnet part of the coupler along with the circle of plastic around it is completely coming away from the rest of the plastic rectangle. I put superglue on it but it isn’t helping. The whole plastic part of the coupler has become brittle and is in danger of falling apart even when bent just a little. Are replacement couplers available?

    Hi, Team Foldscope here! Yes, we can certainly send you more couplers– all you have to do is pay for shipping. Please send a message to and explain your situation, and we’ll get some new couplers sent your way!
