Ascent Solar Accepts Order For EnerPlex TM Charger For Apple’s IPhone

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ASTI), a developer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, announced today that it has received a purchase order for 50,000 units of its EnerPlex solar charger for the Apple ® (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone ® *. The EnerPlex charger was launched in early June, and it was displayed at Ascent’s annual shareholder’s meeting. It was first publicly displayed to the industry at Intersolar in Europe last week. The product takes advantage of Ascent’s ultra-light, thin and flexible solar panels and enables iPhone users to provide supplementary charging of their iPhones with sunlight.

The order is from Ascent’s exclusive distributor in Asia, TFG Radiant, which has advance orders from its channel partners for retail distribution throughout the Asia region. Ascent plans to fulfill the channel orders, supporting the early August retail launch of EnerPlex chargers in Asia.

Ascent Solar’s President and CEO, Victor Lee, said “Initial response to the EnerPlex solar charger has been excellent. We are very encouraged by the initial orders we have received from our distribution partners in Asia and we are receiving strong interest from potential distributors worldwide. We plan to work closely with our channel partners in Asia to support the retail launch of EnerPlex while continuing to pursue expansion opportunities for this revolutionary line of products around the world.”

Lee continued, “Ascent unveiled the EnerPlex charger at Intersolar Europe last week to a tremendous response. The market is clearly excited about our sleek design which provides consumers with a new and fashionable way to power their smartphone. With this launch of our first EnerPlex product, with many more to come, we are taking the first step toward driving a new revenue stream with significant growth opportunity for the company.”

This charger is the first product under Ascent’s new EnerPlex line of consumer products. Ascent is developing future products for other leading smart phones and consumer devices, such as the Samsung ® Galaxy S ® III *.
