Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a manufacturer of
state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, announced
today the retail debut of the company's EnerPlex solar assisted battery
case for the Samsung Galaxy S III, now available for sale at www.goenerplex.com.
The EnerPlex Surfr for Galaxy S III takes advantage of Ascent's
ultra-light, thin and flexible solar panels and enables Galaxy users to
charge their smartphones with sunlight in addition to conventional
charging methods to extend the usage time. The Surfr was displayed at
CES 2013 last week, along with other new products from the company. The
EnerPlex Surfr cases will also be available in the US through additional
retail channels in the near future.
The EnerPlex case for Galaxy S III is uniquely enabled by the
lightweight, thin and highly customizable form factor of Ascent's CIGS
solar cells, allowing solar technology to be integrated into the
thinnest and lightest solar-enabled iPhone case on the market. Paired
with an ultra-thin lithium-ion battery the EnerPlex case provides hours
of additional audio, web and talk time for users.
Ascent Solar's President and CEO, Victor Lee, said: "We were pleased and
excited by the response the Surfr for the S III garnered at CES 2013.
The interest and accolades received continue to affirm the Surfr's
position as the premium solar & battery case available on the market
