There is clearly significant interest in the potential of renewable energy for CE devices, especially Solar, but all too often in the past the practical reality has failed to live up to the hype. The arrival of EnerPlex's award-winning products changes the landscape entirely and offers consumers a real option when it comes to sourcing power on the move – given how much we now all rely on our mobile technology, the opportunities are huge and growing all the time." Ascent’s EnerPlex series is quickly changing the way consumers view solar; with the Surfr^TM line of solar and battery integrated phone cases, as well as the Kickr^TM line of portable solar chargers, EnerPlex products enable consumers to hold the power of solar in their hands. The addition of the Jumpr^TM line-up of portable batteries now enables consumers to have a complete, integrated, solar charging and storage solution for life on the go. More information of the entire EnerPlex series of products can be found at www.goenerplex.com.
