Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc.(NASDAQ:ASTI), a manufacturer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, announced the release of the company's newest consumer product, the EnerPlex Kickr IV.
The EnerPlex Kickr IV is a rugged, lightweight and compact solar charging solution, perfect for a day at the beach, a week in the backcountry, a picnic in the park or even placed on the dashboard driving to work. The durable and lightweight attributes of the product set it apart from competitors using traditional rigid, heavy and fragile crystalline-based solar panels.
Victor Lee, Ascent's President & CEO, said, "The EnerPlex Kickr IV brings to consumers the ability to transform the way they charge and use electronics in their everyday lives. EnerPlex Kickr IV users no longer need to be on lookout for the nearest outlet, or plan their day around a phone's battery life."
In support of the ongoing relief efforts being conducted along the East Coast in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, Ascent Solar has pledged 10% of revenues beginning today, through the end of the year from its EnerPlex product line to support the American Red Cross as they help families recover from this devastating tragedy.
Mr. Lee continued, "We are saddened by the devastating effects of Superstorm Sandy, but are encouraged by the support and efforts of friends, neighbors and families as all help to recover from this tragedy. We at Ascent feel thankful that we have the opportunity to help the American Red Cross in their support and recovery efforts."
