(NASDAQ:ASTI), a developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art, flexible thin-film photovoltaic modules integrated into the company’s EnerPlex™ series of consumer products, announced today four (4) of the company’s EnerPlex products won Red Dot Awards for Product Design from the Essen, Germany based awards conference: the Generatr 1200, Generatr 100, Jumpr Quad and Jumpr Stack series.

Robert Meck, Vice President of Product Engineering for EnerPlex said, “We as a company are honored to have our products recognized by the esteemed Red Dot Organization. Red Dot is an internationally recognized symbol of innovative and quality design, and the four EnerPlex products awarded embody those standards powerfully.”

The EnerPlex Jumpr™ Quad is a 4x AA and AAA battery recharger, which has the unique distinction of also functioning as a power bank with a standard 5-volt USB output when the batteries are charged, allowing users to power a wide variety of devices. “I spend as much time outside of the office outdoors, climbing; and I realized that while a majority of my gear relied on a standard micro-USB input internal battery there were still items like my backup Maglite which needed AAs and AAAs, which is where the concept of the Jumpr Quad was born,” said Mr. Meck.

The EnerPlex Generatr™ 100 and 1200 are ultra-lightweight lithium-ion based batteries, capable of storing immense amounts of power in an extremely compact and durable frame. Weighing up to 60% less than batteries using traditional technology, the Generatrs can go farther and power more than any battery before them.

The EnerPlex Jumpr™ Stack series, the Stack 3, Stack 6 and Stack 9 are a pioneering family of batteries equipped with dual micro-USB and Lightning tethered connectors, allowing users to charge their phone, tablet or other device directly from the battery without extra cables or accessories. The Jumpr Stack series is also set apart by its inventive Stack and Charge design which enables multiple batteries to be charged from a single cable. “For every electronics user today, the tangle of cables that exists on your kitchen counter, in your purse or on your desk is a nuisance; the Jumpr Stack series was designed to eliminate cords and cables whenever possible, simplifying your life,” concluded Mr. Meck.
