Ascent introduces CIGS-based EnerPlexKickr I and II

Ascent Solar Technologies Inc of Thornton, CO, USA, a maker of copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic modules, which it integrates into its EnerPlex series of consumer products, has introduced two new additions to its Kickr line of personal solar chargers, the EnerPlexKickr I and II.

The Kickr I, with a 1.5 watt output, is for charging batteries and power banks, while the Kickr II is capable of charging most smartphones in under five hours with a 3 watt output. Both the Kickr I & II are lightweight, flexible and compact, says the firm.

The Kickr line of personal solar chargers is enabled by the flexible, rugged, lightweight and thin form factor of Ascent's proprietary CIGS solar cells. EnerPlexKickr products are designed for consumers who desire a robust, durable and rugged charging solution when off the grid.

“The Kickr I & II and the expansion of the Kickr line represents another step forward for Ascent’s consumer brand, EnerPlex as we continue to deliver rugged and innovative solutions to consumers who require the absolute best in portable charging solutions, whether they are working in a remote oil field or summiting a treacherous peak,” says Ascent Solar's VP of product development Robert Meck.
