THORNTON, Colo. -- August 20, 2013

Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:ASTI), a manufacturer of consumer and
off-grid products integrated with state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film
photovoltaic modules, announced today the debut of the Jumpr^TM Mini, the
newest product in the company’s Jumpr line of power banks.

The Jumpr Mini is an ultra-thin and extremely lightweight battery, capable of
boosting most smartphones’ batteries 55-85% on a single charge. With the same
dimension as a conventional credit card and at only 6mm thick, the Jumpr Mini
is by far the thinnest and lightest battery of its kind available. Equipped
with an expandable USB port, the Mini is able to store 1350 mAh of power while
remaining thinner than a standard USB outlet.

The Jumpr Mini is immediately available for purchase via Ascent’s locations in
the Denver area ,as well as online at www.goenerplex.com.

Ascent Solar's Manager of Branding & Marketing, Justin Jacobs, said, “The
Jumpr Mini is a perfect complement to our current line of Jumpr batteries,
small enough to fit into a wallet or purse, yet powerful enough to provide a
boost whenever needed. The Jumpr Mini is perfect for those who need a quick
charge while they are on the go and a lifesaver for those who do not always
have easy access to an outlet.”
