Ascent’s CIGS-based EnerPlex solar assisted battery case now available in North America

Ascent Solar Technologies Inc of Thornton, CO, USA, which manufactures thin-film photovoltaic modules based on copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) using flexible substrate materials, has announced the retail debut of the firm's EnerPlex solar assisted battery case for the iPhone 4 and 4S in North America with one of its distributors, CommXPERTS.

The EnerPlex case takes advantage of Ascent's ultra-light, thin and flexible solar panels to enable iPhone 4 & 4S users to provide supplementary charging of their iPhones with sunlight. Based on Ascent’s CIGS solar cell technology, EnerPlex is the thinnest and lightest solar-enabled iPhone case on the market, says the firm.

Ascent Solar's president and CEO, Victor Lee, said: "We are excited to provide consumers with the ability to experience the transformational qualities of Ascent's award-winning CIGS solar technology through a product that complements one of the most popular consumer devices in history. Moving forward we are eager to introduce a wide range of EnerPlex solutions for a variety of consumer products, including Apple’s iPhone 5."

EnerPlex cases are now available online through the distributor's website at www.iPhoneSolarCharger.com.
