Does the Nothing phone (1) support fast charging?

Best answer: Yes, the Nothing phone (1) does support 33W PD3.0 USB-C fast charging, albeit through wired means only.

Charging your Nothing phone (1) back up

The Nothing phone (1) sports a decent 4,500mAh battery that’s enough to deliver more than a day’s worth of average uptime. As our very own Harish Jonnalagadda found during his hands-on testing, the device doesn’t die before the end of the night, even if you’re a power user.

While this is an absolutely necessary feature in a stellar Android phone, topping your phone (1) back up is equally important. Thankfully, Carl Pei’s brainchild doesn’t disappoint in that area either. 

The Nothing phone (1) goes from flat dead to half-full in half an hour via 33W PD3.0 wired charging. Of course, you need to have a compatible USB-C charger at hand, which you will have to buy separately, as Nothing doesn’t include one in the box.

Thankfully, at least you still get a USB-C cable in the package. If you’re planning on getting the Nothing device, or already have one, be sure to grab a compatible charger for the phone (1) that has the USB PD 3.0 protocol and delivers at least 33W speeds or more.
