Ascent Solar Technologies

Shares of Ascent Solar Technologies (NASDAQ: ASTI), the Thornton, CO photovoltaic technology company, rose 48.28% Wednesday on almost 8 times the average daily volume.

Ascent Solar Technologies announced Wednesday it has launched a charger for the Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iPhone 4/4S smart phone featuring Ascent's ultra light CIGS technology.

Branded under Ascent's new EnerPlex line of consumer products, the charger incorporates the company's solar cells into a sleek, protective iPhone 4/4S case, along with a thin battery. The charger adds minimal weight and size to an iPhone smart phone, yet provides significantly improved battery life by harnessing sunlight for electric power.

The first product in a forthcoming line of smart phone chargers from Ascent Solar, the EnerPlex product is designed specifically for the Apple iPhone. Ascent plans to introduce similar chargers for other smart phones, including the newly launched Samsung Galaxy SIII, in the near future.
