THORNTON, Colo. -- December 03, 2012

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a manufacturer of
state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules, announced today the
release of the company’s Jumpr battery pack.

The EnerPlex Jumpr is a multipurpose battery pack that gives users the
capability to store solar power generated from their EnerPlex Kickr^TM IV
solar chargers or from a conventional plug in power source. The charged Jumpr
can then be used to recharge or power electronic devices in virtually any
setting. The Jumpr product line includes the Model 4400, rated for 4400
milliamp-hours, that can provide about 3 recharges to your smartphone. It also
includes the larger Model 7800, rated for 7800 milliamp-hours, which will
charge larger devices such as tablet computers.

“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,” stated Victor Lee, Ascent’s President &
CEO.

The EnerPlex Jumpr is available for sale standalone or bundled with Kickr IV
through Ascent’s official website at www.enerplex.biz. A commercial video and
pictures of the two products are also available on www.enerplex.biz/kickr.

In line with its previous Kickr IV announcement, Ascent will continue to
pledge 10% of the revenues from Jumpr beginning today through the end of the
year to support the American Red Cross in the continued recovery effort of
Hurricane Sandy.
