The new EnerPlex Commandr™ large-format solar chargers and Generatr line of heavy-duty and lightweight batteries garnered rave reviews at OR, due to each’s lightweight characteristics and their extreme portability compared to the competition.

Justin R. Jacobs, EnerPlex’s Manager of Brand Development, stated, “These positive reviews of our new products, particularly the Generatr 1200, flagship of our Generatr line, and our revolutionary line of solar integrated backpacks, highlight the tremendous consumer and retail interest in our rugged and portable line of solar-enabled power solutions.”

Mr. Jacobs continued, “EnerPlex’s reviews, garnered at Outdoor Retailer, cemented the brand in both the consumer electronics and outdoor retail space. It is clear that consumers no longer want to be burdened by heavy and bulky portable charging solutions, and the newly expanded EnerPlex product line is exceptionally well positioned to provide lightweight and extremely portable power solutions utilizing our revolutionary CIGS solar technology as well as leading-edge battery technology and design.”

The expanded EnerPlex Packr™ line of solar integrated backpacks also attracted reviewers and retailers alike, with many attendees amazed by EnerPlex’s ability to integrate flexible solar in a seamless and aesthetically pleasing way particularly when compared to packs which attempted to integrate traditional silicon-based solar panels.
