THORNTON, Colo. -- August 28, 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 the release of the newest product in the
company’s EnerPlex^TMJumpr^TM line of portable batteries, the Jumpr Stack.

The Jumpr Stack is offered in a family pack of three 1600mAh batteries with a
master power base. Each battery has the footprint of a standard credit card
and is no thicker than a standard USB port. The Jumpr Stack batteries are
capable of boosting uptime for most smartphones by 50-80% percent. What truly
sets the Jumpr Stack’s batteries apart is their ability to be charged by
simply stacking the batteries on top of each other, without the need of any
cable connection while resting on the master power base.

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

Ascent Solar's Manager of Branding & Marketing, Justin Jacobs, stated “The
Jumpr Stack’s revolutionary magnetic and cordless charging capability makes
the product perfect for family members to easily take them with them while on
the go. Unlike other batteries, the Jumpr Stack enables consumers to take
exactly the right amount of power with them, rather than carrying more
capacity than they actually need.”
