Carl Pei, the co-founder of OnePlus and Nothing, is making waves in the mobile industry with his innovative approach. Recently, Nothing released a video showcasing a product that didn’t make it to the market – the Nothing Power (1). This pocketable charger boasted 65W wireless charging capabilities and the ability to charge multiple devices simultaneously. Unfortunately, the device never saw the light of day, but Pei and his team learned valuable lessons from the experience.
Pei expressed his excitement about the Power (1), which was originally slated for release after the Nothing ear (1) in August 2021. However, Pei ultimately decided against launching the product, as he realized that its features were already available individually. Looking back, Pei believes that Nothing can achieve much more in terms of innovation. While the Power (1) may have been a remarkable product in 2021, the company has even grander plans for 2023.
One of the main challenges in developing the Power (1) was ensuring that it maintained optimal performance without overheating. Despite the efforts to address this issue, the device failed Nothing’s drop tests, forcing the company to cancel its release. Pei acknowledged that canceling the Power (1) was a difficult decision but ultimately the right one.
Since then, Nothing has released two smartphones, a sequel to their successful Ear (1), and the Ear (stick). As an industry disruptor, Nothing continues to push boundaries and deliver groundbreaking products.
