GoSun Fusion: Versatility Champ
The Fusion’s hybrid solar/electric technology enables cooking anywhere, anytime thanks to the oven's vacuum tube, known for its advanced thermal performance. Five times more efficient than a normal oven cook meals with the energy needed to power a lightbulb.
Here's a short video that explains how the Fusion works.
If you happen to be out of power and sunlight, the GoSun Fusion can be powered from anything that can provide 150 Watts at 12 volts. This includes 12V outlets or a power source from carport jacks (cigarette lighter port), boat or RV battery, and much more*.
A great way to power your GoSun Fusion is with the optional, lithium-ion battery Powerbank. Just recharge your Powerbank with the provided AC adapter (wall plug) after your adventure and you’re ready to do it all over again.
