The EnerPlex Surfr case for Galaxy S4 comes with the choice of multiple
colors, and is uniquely enabled by the lightweight, thin and highly
customizable form factor of Ascent's proprietary CIGS solar cells, allowing
solar technology to be integrated into the thinnest and lightest solar-enabled
case on the market. Paired with an ultra-thin 2500 mAh lithium-ion battery,
the EnerPlex case provides not only protection to the smartphone but hours of
additional audio, web and talk time for consumers.

Ascent Solar's President and CEO, Victor Lee, said: "With 40 million S4’s
already sold since the product’s debut, we feel the Surfr Solar & Battery case
is the perfect complementary accessory for this wildly successful smartphone,
opening the EnerPlex brand to an even wider audience of smartphone users.”

The EnerPlex Surfr for the Galaxy S4 will be available for sale nationwide in
mid-November just in time for the holiday shopping season via the company’s
EnerPlex retail outlets, Fry’s Electronics as well as online at
www.goenerplex.com, www.walmart.com and www.newegg.com.
