|Includes: Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (ASTI)

Photovoltaic modules manufacturer Ascent Solar Technologies announced yesterday that it has released Jumpr, the company's new battery pack. The battery pack is part of the company's EnerPlex line of consumer products.

A multipurpose battery back, the EnerPlex Jumpr allows users to store solar power generated from EnerPlex KickrTM IV solar chargers or from conventional plug in power sources. Then, users can use the charged battery pack to power electronic devices in virtually any setting.

The Jumpr product line includes the Model 4400, rated for 4400 milliamp-hours, which can provide about 3 recharges to your smartphone. It also includes the larger Model 7800, rated for 7800 milliamp-hours, which can charge larger devices such as tablet computers. The EnerPlex Jumpr is available for sale standalone or bundled with Kickr IV through Ascent's official website at

Ascent's President and CEO, Victor Lee, remarked, "The EnerPlex Jumpr, with its power storage capability and compact design, is a great addition to our recently announced Kickr IV portable solar charging units. With these two innovative products everyone from backpackers to road warriors can virtually live life untethered and power their smartphones or other electronic devices off-grid."

Ascent has committed to pledging 10% of the revenues from Jumpr through the end of the year to support the American Red Cross in its continued recovery effort of Hurricane Sandy.
