PowerFilm, Inc. Key Developments

PowerFilm, Inc. Announces the Release of the LightSaver

In 2015, PowerFilm, Inc. announced the release of the LightSaver, the first in new consumer driven LightSaver line of products. PowerFilm will be providing the media and attendees of the upcoming Consumer Electronic's Show (CES) a sneak peak of two additional products in the line, the Pocket and the Max, scheduled for release in early 2016. The LightSaver line of products provides consumers with a green solution to remote power needs and is perfect for providing energy for a variety of electronic devices including cell phones, tablets, and cameras. In addition, PowerFilm products are manufactured in the United States using the amorphous silicon technology, making the panels incredibly flexible. As a result of using this technology, PowerFilm products provide the consumer with a number of advantages over products using competing solar technologies.

PowerFilm, Inc. Announces New LightSaver Product Line

PowerFilm, Inc. announced the unveiling of their new LightSaver product line at the summer 2015 Outdoor Retail Market scheduled to take place from August 5th through the 8th in Salt Lake City, Utah. In addition, PowerFilm will be providing a sneak preview of its new, innovative products during a pre-show media event sponsored by the Outdoor Retailer Market. PowerFilm's LightSaver products are durable, compact and lightweight and are part of a solar charging system. The smallest product in the line is the LightSaver Pocket which weighs a mere 3.5 ounces with a 2.8 Ah USB charger and is perfect for charging cell phones, tablets, MP3 players, camera batteries, GoProsĀ®, GPS systems, etc. It features 1 USB Output and a multi-color (red/Green) LED that indicates percent of charge. The LightSaver weighs slightly more than the Pocket version at 4.7 ounces but packs more power at 3.2 Ah and twice the solar. Like the LightSaver Pocket, the standard LightSaver has 1 USB output and a multi-color LED that indicates percent of battery charge. It is perfect for charging the same items the Pocket will, but provides more bang for the buck from the solar panel. Loaded with 16Ah of power, the LightSaver Maxx comes in at a mere 1 lb in weight. The Maxx takes the basic functionality of the LightSaver but increases the battery capacity and adds a high power output for higher draw electronics such as laptops.
