Hardware company Elgato is offering its Key Light Mini for a 40% discount as an Amazon Prime Day deal, a great bargain for livestreaming or Zoom call setups. The rechargeable, portable mini light is on sale for $59.99, down from its original price of $99.99.

The cool thing about Elgato’s Key Light Mini is that its size makes it easy to take on the go and gives it a small footprint on your permanent livestreaming setup. It’s easy to connect to a tripod or a camera, but it’s also got a magnet embedded in the back, so you could theoretically slap it on a magnetic surface for a makeshift mount on the go.

Stats-wise, the light comes has an adjustable brightness up to 800 lumens, with a color range from 2900K to 7000K. The light ends up with a surface area of 147 x 100 x 17 mm. Elgato estimates that the rechargeable battery will last up to four hours at 50% brightness per charge. You can adjust the brightness and color range — helpful for changing the ambiance of your setup — wirelessly through a smartphone app, which means easy access to all the settings.

Elgato also sells a specialized mount for its lights, but it’s not necessary — just a bonus if you’re looking for a durable, 180-degree tilt and 360-degree swivel mount. It’s available for $24.99, but it’s not on sale for Prime Day.

In addition to the Elgato Key Light Mini, there are a lot of other great Prime Day gaming accessory deals worth checking out, including discounts on gaming mice, gaming headsets, and gaming monitors. We’ve also found discounts on some of our other favorite gaming gear, like the LG 1440p gaming monitor, Sony Inzone H9 headset, Samsung 512 microSD card, the Backbone One controller, and Joy-Con replacement sticks.
