The EnerPlex Surfr for Galaxy S4 takes advantage of Ascent's ultra-light, thin
and flexible solar panels and enables Galaxy users to boost their smartphones
with sunlight in addition to conventional charging methods to extend usage
time.

The EnerPlex case for Galaxy S4 is uniquely enabled by the lightweight, thin
and highly customizable form factor of Ascent's CIGS solar cells, allowing

Samsung case on the market. Paired with an ultra-thin lithium-ion battery the
EnerPlex Surfr provides hours of additional audio, web and talk time for
users.

"Equipped with a 2500 mAh battery and solar panel for emergency charging, the
Surfr for the Galaxy S4 remains extremely lightweight and retains a slim
profile; making it a perfect accessory for those consumers who require more
power for their phone while they are on the go."
