EnerPlex is an exciting new range of uniquely lightweight, durable and highly energy efficient photovoltaic charging solutions for today's power-hungry tech users. With their busy schedule, the Breitling team will be able to make full use of the EnerPlex range to not only keep all their devices charged, but also take advantage of solar energy during their down-time.

"Often, when our aircraft are parked at airshows, finding the nearest power socket is a real challenge to say the least. This range of solar equipment really has solved this problem once and for all. Now we're able to use and recharge our mobile devices without worrying about running out of power - essential for checking the weather or filing a flight plan" - Martyn Carrington - Director of Flying - BreitlingWing Walkers

As a division of Breitling Air Time, the UK-based AeroSuperBatics are the world's only aerobatic formation wing-walking team. They have been specialists in display flying for over 27 years and operate one of the best known and loved civilian air display acts in Europe; with a spectatorship of over 6 million in the UK alone.
