This year has proved that an emergency preparedness kit is more important than ever. Millions of Americans in storm-ravaged states lost their power and water in the Arctic outbreak of February 2021. The extreme cold in Texas caused pipes to crack, water treatment plants to go offline, and the energy grid to fail in large portions of the state. Over 14 million in 160 Texas counties were affected.
In response, companies are selling products for Fathers Day with disaster preparedness in mind. One of the best known of these is GoSun.
GoSun offers many different lighting systems, from flashlights to complete cabin lights. The Solar Lamp 50 is a portable solar light that gets its name from its 50 lumens of light. For a softer setting, it can be adjusted it to 20 lumens of light, which lasts for up to six hours. The Solar Lamp 50 weighs only 6 ounces, making it fully portable. And it'll work as long as the power is down because it only requires one full day of sunshine to completely recharge the battery.
GoSun has always focused on solar-powered food prep, and it has a lineup of cookers to meet all sorts of cooking needs, whether one person or a large family. The GoSun Sport, for example, offers performance in low light, speed, and flexibility. The Sport has the ability to bake, roast steam, or fry a meal in as little as 20 minutes in full Sun and pack up into a 7.5lb package to be taken on the go.
For versatility, the most powerful oven is the Fusion. Its hybrid solar/electric technology enables cooking anywhere, anytime thanks to the oven's vacuum tube, known for its advanced thermal performance. It is five times more efficient than a normal oven cook meals with the energy needed to power a lightbulb.
The final solar-powered Fathers Day gift worth mentioning is The Flow. It is the world's first portable solar-powered purifier that produces enough clean water to wash dishes or even take a shower. Really, it's an entire kitchen sink that can fit into a backpack, so one is able to sanitize while away from home.
Taking a hot shower during a black is very difficult without a ton of gear and patience so GoSun combined the Flow with our hybrid solar and electric stove, making a solar shower that works in minutes.
Whether making coffee for weary campers, keeping the drinks cold on the fishing trip, or finding the flashlight when the power's out, GoSun products give fathers the infinite power of the Sun.
Here are some reviews of GoSun's products:
"Well thought through. Also, the instructions are excellent. So far I used it to boil water and inadvertently to burn some peanuts, angering my wife because of the awful smell."
Here's another review from a loyal customer.
“I can keep three gallons of water frozen on sunny days and 35 degrees is easy on cloudy days. Well insulated, very quiet. I've been waiting a long time for an affordable quality state-of-the-art cooler like this." - Steve Page.
