THORNTON - Ascent Solar Technologies Inc. (NASDAQ: ASTI), a developer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules integrated into the company's EnerPlex series of consumer products, today announced the debut of the Surfr Battery and Solar Case for the iPhone 6.

The Surfr for iPhone 6 is being showcased during the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that runs from Jan. 6-9.

Ascent said the Surfr Battery and Solar Case for the iPhone 6 is the first case to integrate both battery storage and solar charging into a sleek, thin and compact case.

Ascent said the case enables more than 10 hours of extra talk time and a doubling of video and audio capacity.

"The integration of Ascent Solar's revolutionary photovoltaic technology into this case is another example of the multitude of applications for Ascent's ultra-versatile thin-film solar," said Victor Lee, Ascent Solar president and CEO.

Equipped with an incorporated micro-USB input, users can charge both their case and phone by plugging into any USB power source, Ascent said, reducing their need to be constantly looking for an outlet.
