Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. announced the appointment of MKRAK Management Inc. as the company's exclusive distributor to golf pro shops and select retail stores in the Canadian market.

The EnerPlex Surfr product line is the first series of protective phone cases to leverage the lightweight qualities and superior aesthetics of Ascent Solar's CIGS solar technology. It extends the battery life of either the Apple iPhone 4 or Samsung Galaxy S III while preserving the high level of design quality that consumers demand. Consumers can now incorporate green technology into their everyday life, improving the performance of their smart phone without compromising style.

"Golfers today use their smart phones for a wide range of applications such as GPS, swing analysis and filming; yet there is no convenient source of power on the golf course to charge their phones when their batteries run out,” said Rob Roche, Ascent's vice president of sales and marketing. “EnerPlex products provide that guaranteed power source at all times. Cementing EnerPlex's position in the golf market was the inclusion of the EnerPlex Surfr in Golf Digest as one of the Top Ten items golfers need today.

"The Canadian golf market is an important segment for Ascent Solar to pursue, and we have found the perfect partner for this market entry with MKRAK Management,” Roche added. “MKRAK Management has proven itself in bringing new and technologically advanced products into the Canadian golf market."

"We are very excited about working with Ascent,” Mark Krakower, president and CEO of MKRAK Management said. “Ascent Solar's line of products is revolutionary and will fill the void that golfers must fill today when they are on the golf course or on the range and their smart phones need power suddenly, but none is available. The EnerPlex line of products will become an integral part of the golfer's equipment that they won't go to the course or the practice range without."
