After an entire year of living as shut-ins, many people are ready to get outside like never before. One of the quickest go-to activities for consumers is cooking outside. According to NPD Group, consumers spent more than $4.9 billion on grills, smokers, camping stoves, accessories, and fuel in 2020.
"The need to cook more meals at home combined with the desire to experiment with new ways to create those meals helped fuel growth for almost all types of grills," said Joe Derochowski, home industry advisor at NPD. "Layer on our cravings to be less confined, safe, and create an experience during the pandemic, and we get sales growth not only in the core grilling months, but also before and after."
Over 14 million grills and smokers were sold between April 2020 and February 2021, amounting to a 39% increase in dollar sales during the pandemic, compared to the same period a year ago. Moreover, the second half of 2020 saw dollar growth in excess of 50%. October and November had year-over-year sales growth than the 58% dollar increase seen in May 2020.
With this massive growth in the sale of outdoors and camping cookers and gear, GoSun is ready to lead the pack.

In the case of the GoSun Solar Cooler, it is powered by a portable lithium battery pack. The large 150 watt-hour solar power pack can also power laptops, cell phones, and many other portable accessories, making it the perfect outdoor product to be prepared for a power outage or emergency.
