The VW Type 2 microbus is an icon and not just for hippies and serial killers. Its simplicity, capacity, and pill-shaped body has made it a favorite on at least two continents. Now, it’s been properly updated by EV West by electrifying it. A 1972 Type 2 is the base vehicle, and it wisely borrows the engine from its own stablemate, the 2017 e-Golf. Instead of a meager 60 horses in the original van, it now gets better torque and more than double the horsepower. Range on a single charge is 125 miles, so it can manage the daily commute with ease. The rest of the vehicle looks properly vintage, though pristine. It’s the best collision of low-key modern electric power with even lower-key old-school style. You’ll show off the efficient engine while the manual windows and lack of infotainment will keep you humble.

Digging for the scoop in a bag of coffee means you’re going to get grounds stuck under your fingernails. Not clamping that bag shut when you’re done means those grounds could also end up all over your shelf. The Coffee Scoop Bag Clip solves both those problems. The stainless steel Coffee Scoop Bag Clip has a 1 tablespoon measuring cup on the end of the clip for easy scooping and sealing.
