THORNTON -- Ascent Solar Technologies Inc. (Nasdaq: ASTI), a developer and manufacturer of flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules integrated into the company’s EnerPlex series of consumer products, today announced the launch of its EnerPlex products in 172 Maplin Electronics stores in the UK.
Maplin Electronics is one of the largest consumer electronics retailers in the UK.
Last month, Ascent announced the availability of its EnerPlex products in 100 select Sports Authority stores in the U.S.
Ascent said EnerPlex has changed the paradigm of solar-integrated and portable power products, such as GoPro action cameras and wearables to track fitness goals.
“Domestically, overall wearable unit sales are projected to hit 30.9 million in 2015,” said Victor Lee, Ascent Solar’s president and CEO.
“When combined with action cameras, these two product segments alone represent over 35 million units and customers in need of lightweight portable power solutions.”
