charging products are lighter, more powerful and more rugged than any other
available.

for product designers to come learn and discuss about how our unique,
lightweight, flexible and powerful solar technology can be integrated into a
wide variety of innovative consumer and specialty outdoor applications; we
look forward to exploring new horizons and uses for Ascent’s solar
technology.”
