Scooters started out as a plaything for kids; they weren’t necessarily something an adult would use. But now scooters are larger and have become a common and efficient means to go around the city. Grown-ups no longer feel self-conscious using them. There are a lot of models out there that look stylish and sleek. Plus, companies that manufacture electric scooters have upgraded their batteries so you can use them for a much longer time. One such scooter is the Xiaomi Mi, a lightweight foldable adult electric scooter.

The Xiaomi Mi electric scooter is available on Amazon as a Prime Day deal for $97 less. Instead of paying $496, just shell out $399 .

This Xiaomi Mi is a multi-awarded electric scooter notable for its unique and minimalist design and outstanding functionality. It has a folding design that makes it portable and allows you to pop it right in the trunk of your car.

This electric scooter looks undeniably cool. Its frame is made of low-density aerospace-grade aluminum which makes it light but has high structural strength. It also has excellent thermal conductivity, so it doesn’t heat up that much, and a powder-coat finish that provides extra corrosion resistance. The entire scooter weighs 26.9 pounds and looks sturdy.

It has a much longer range compared to other scooters. In near perfect conditions, you can ride it for at least 18.9 miles at 15.5 mph. This range can last for a few days between charging. To squeeze every mile out of the battery, you can engage Eco-mode. This will limit your speed and acceleration but will significantly extend the range for a few miles. The scooter is propelled by a 250-watt motor and a high-capacity battery.

The scooter comes with an extremely bright 1.1-watt headlight which you can switch on at night. It also has a rear brake light which can be turned on continuously for better night visibility.

The 8.5-inch front and rear tires are larger than the average scooter and are shock absorbent and have anti-slip treads, so you don’t have to worry about bumpy trails or riding in the rain. It is still a scooter though, so you need to be wary of road holes and big bumps.

The most important aspect of the Xiaomi Mi electric scooter is how easy it is to use. The controls are intuitive and easy to grasp, and riding it is smooth and uncomplicated. The handle is made of anti-slip material, and four LED lights on the tiny dashboard tell you the amount of juice that the battery still has. Another handy feature that the scooter has is its software lock. Using the app, you can lock the scooter which renders it impossible for thieves to use. The app also lets you know the scooter’s speed, battery level, and mileage.

Audio-Technica has three of its best turntables on sale for Prime Day
The Audio Technica AT-LP120XUSB turntable.

More than a decade ago, my first ever turntable was the Audio-Technica AT-LP120, a beast of a direct-drive machine that starts and stops on a dime, is stable as all hell, and couldn't be easier to use. I still have it, and while I've added several other types and grades of turntables over the years, it's still in regular, er, rotation in my setup.

As far as entry-to-mid-level turntables go, Audio-Technica is one of the best brands out there -- we feature several of them on our best turntables list. If you've been hemming and hawing over getting a new turntable to kick off your vinyl obsession, or maybe you're looking to upgrade your starter deck, now's your chance to get your hands on one of three of Audio Technica's most popular turntables for up to 29% off as part of Amazon Prime Day: the entry-level AT-LP60X, it's Bluetooth-enabled sibling the AT-LP60XBT, and the AT-LP120XUSB, a newer, USB-capable version of my trusty old tank that I mentioned above.

Coffee or tea drinker? You need to see (and buy) this Prime Day deal
Two Ember Smart Mug 2's on a tray with a cafetiere.

Whether it's your favored old arbor pu'erh or a cup of Folgers, nothing is worse than your prized drink hot drink going from hot and vibrant to cool and tepid.  But of all of the Prime Day deals we've searched through, none look quite so good for hot beverage lovers as this deal on the Ember Smart Mug 2.

Why you should buy the Ember Smart Mug 2
The Ember Smart Mug 2 is a brilliant way to allow yourself to slowly sip and savor your morning beverage rather than drinking it in a mad dash to preserve warmth. By using a fine-tuned, app controlled temperature adjustment, you can set the temperature that the warming base of the Ember Smart Mug 2 targets. Anywhere from 120 to 145-degrees Fahrenheit will do. When it detects your drink getting cooler than the desired temperatures, it fires up the heat and brings the world back into balance. In a weird sort of way, it is reminiscent of a smart thermostat that is specific for your drink.
