See the Surfr for Galaxy S4 for the first time here! The EnerPlex Surfr case for Galaxy S4 comes with the choice of multiple colors, and is uniquely enabled by the lightweight, thin and highly customizable form factor of Ascent's proprietary CIGS solar cells, allowing solar technology to be integrated into the thinnest and lightest solar-enabled case on the market. Paired with an ultra-thin 2500 mAh lithium-ion battery, the EnerPlex case provides not only protection to the smartphone but hours of additional audio, web and talk time for consumers.
