Victor LeeTHORNTON - Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. announced today it has received an order for 50,000 units of its EnerPlex solar charger for the Apple iPhone.

The EnerPlex charger was launched earlier this month and first publicly displayed to the industry at InterSolar in Europe last week.

The product takes advantage of Ascent's ultra-light, thin and flexible solar panels and enables iPhone users to provide supplementary charging of their iPhones with sunlight.

The order is from Ascent's exclusive distributor in Asia, TFG Radiant, which has advance orders from its channel partners for retail distribution throughout Asia.

Initial response to the EnerPlex solar charger has been excellent," said Victor Lee, Ascent's president and CEO. "We are very encouraged by the initial orders we have received from our distributions partners in Asia and we are receiving strong interest from potential distributors worldwide."

The charger is the first product under Ascent's new EnerPlex line of consumer products. Ascent is developing future products for other leading smart phones and consumer devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S III.
