What is the material of the mirror, plastic or glass?

It is made of glass.

No, this mirror doesn’t support any power-operated functions.

Are there any other options like lighted, higher magnification level, or table-top?

No, only one option available is wall mount non-lighted with 5X magnification.

Is it portable?

No, this mirror is designed to to be permanently mounted on the wall, you can only remove it by unscrewing the screws.

Can I adjust the tension of the extension arm?

No. You can’t. However, if the movement is not smooth, you can try to apply some light oil on the scissor arm, or on the rods to make the clamps slide more easily.

Can I use the removable Command Damage-Free hangers to mount the mirror?

We suggest using strong screws and anchors to fix the mirror into the wall for safety reason.

No, you can’t. The height of the mirror is fixed after you install it. However, you can use the swivel to change the angle of the mirror up and down.

Should I install the mirror in the shower?

Yes, you can but the mirror could steam up and get rust. You better avoid installing the mirror in the shower for a longer last.
