CES Provides a Sneak Peak into the LightSaver Line of Products
PowerFilm's technology provides consumers with advantages over products using competing solar technologies

AMES, Iowa, Dec. 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In 2015, PowerFilm™, Inc. proudly announced the release of the LightSaver, the first in our 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 outperforms the competing technologies in low-light situations. Other solar technologies require direct sun to perform. When shade covers even a portion of the panel, they can be rendered entirely ineffective. PowerFilm's solar technology does not have this limitation. Check out this video:

The durability of PowerFilm's products is far superior to our competitors. For example, technologies that use crystalline technology are highly susceptible to damage due to their fragile nature. Damaging just one portion of the panels using other technologies can render the device useless. Take a look at this video that illustrates how PowerFilm's products take extreme abuse and continue to perform:

The LightSaver line of products are lightweight - the lightest on the market - and compact, both of which make them easy for users to store in a purse, backpack or even a pocket.

Founder and CEO, Dr. Frank Jeffrey, talks about the LightSaver Product line:

With over 27 years of experience producing high-quality products for the military and B2B markets, PowerFilm is excited to be bringing our expertise into the consumer arena with the launch of the LightSaver line of products. The LightSaver line gives consumers access to PowerFilm's, unique solar technology that has historically been available only to those in the B2B and military markets.
