Ascent Solar’s EnerPlex™ Brand Now Available On BestBuy.com

December 29th, 2014 by  

EnerPlex Best BuyThe prominent flexible thin-film solar cell module developer/manufacturer Ascent Solar Technologies recently came to an agreement with Best Buy that will see the company’s EnerPlex™ line of products available on the retail company’s website, effective immediately.

The move represents a notable step in the growing mainstreaming of solar energy technologies. Given the many potential advantages of solar energy technologies over conventional power delivery paths/technologies, this growing acceptance isn’t all that surprising. But still nice to see of course.

The General Manager of Ascent Solar’s EnerPlex division, Richard Hashim, commented on the matter thusly: “EnerPlex has uniquely positioned ourselves as a premium power solution and green alternative to the outlet; providing power for devices which all consumers use, whether it be phones, tablets, cameras, wearables or other devices.”

EnerPlex has changed the paradigm of solar-integrated consumer electronics, providing consumers with lightweight, powerful, and extremely durable charging solutions for all their portable electronics. Surfr™, a line of solar and battery integrated phone cases, allows users to charge their phone anywhere and in cases of emergency. Kickr™, a line of portable solar chargers, provides a charging solution for most USB-enabled devices, enabling power to be generated almost anywhere and in nearly every situation, perfect for emergency preparedness. With the addition of the Jumpr™ line of portable batteries, consumers now have a complete, integrated, solar charging and storage solution for life on the go.
