How many times have you gotten yourself tangled on your hair blower cord? How many times have you wished there were an easier way to just dry hair?

You aren’t alone. These are precisely the problems Volo aims to solve.

At CES 2019, Volo Beauty showed off their ingenious solution: The Volo Go Cordless Hair Dryer. This means you eliminate the hassle of having to deal with wires as you dry hair — which can be so annoying. This also means you can dry your hair anywhere in the house without being tied to a specific spot because you need to plug in.

Aside from the convenience of being unattached, the Volo Go uses infrared heat to dry hair. The only ones in the market to use said tech, Volo claims that this method dries hair faster from the inside. This also means less heat damage to your locks.

I got to try the famed hair dryer at CES and right off the bat, I can tell you that despite it being battery-powered, it’s one powerful machine that will effectively dry and style your hair.

The people behind Volo are by no means new to the industry. Founded by Ryan Goldman, who has been in the beauty business for years, and Jonathan Friedman, who is the engineering brains behind this new device, the company aims to bring true innovations to the beauty industry starting with this dryer.

Available this spring, the Volo Go retails for US$ 399. You can also get them at a better price on Kickstarter.

Xiaomi’s 200W charger is coming next year

Production starts June

Published

on

Xiaomi is reportedly gearing up for the mass production of its 200W HyperCharge next year. This week, the charging wars heated up with iQOO’s rumored 160W charging solution coming out for the iQOO 8. Though the rumor was impressive, Xiaomi’s 200W wired charging solution, which was revealed earlier this year, was always looming in the shadows.

Back in May, the Chinese company official unveiled the charging solution, touting a charge time of just eight minutes for a 4000mAh battery. The solution also boasted a 120W wireless charging compatibility to boot. Naturally, as with most new technologies announced, it takes a while before the company can safely release it for the public. True enough, some reports warned that the blazing fast solution actually degraded batteries.

However, according to Chinese publication MyDrivers, Xiaomi is ready to unleash it to the public. The company is reportedly aiming for production to start as early as June 2022. It will supposedly pair up with Xiaomi’s most premium model next year, the Mi 12 Ultra.

For years, Chinese companies have worked on creating the best charging solutions for consumers. Though most new ones are just experiments at this point, some are already coming out for the market. Besides the impressive 160W charger from iQOO, Samsung is also reportedly working on a much-needed fast charger for next year’s flagships.

Nothing’s first TWS earbuds will have 24-hour battery

According to CEO Carl Pei

When Carl Pei announced his first venture after OnePlus, it was shrouded in mystery. Simply called Nothing, the new business showed no indication as to what it was working on except for a hard focus on audio products. However, as time passed, Pei is slowly drip-feeding the world with little tidbits about the company’s first product. The CEO has already revealed the upcoming Nothing ear (1). Now, we have a few more details about the wearable.

According to Pei, the wearable will come in a semi-transparent case, rivalling its competitor’s opaque cases. Further, the case will have a 570mAh battery capable of fast wired and wireless charging capabilities.

Pei boasts that the battery can last up to 24 hours with active noise cancellation enabled. Without the setting enabled, it can go for up to 36 hours. Because of the fast charging, a 10-minute charge can power the battery for up to 6 to 8 hours. It’s a massive claim especially for power users.

Nothing is expected to launch the ear (1) on Tuesday next week, July 27. It will be the company’s first launch since its founding earlier this year.

After that launch, Pei says that the company is already set to launch another device by the end of the year. Unfortunately, though the CEO is wont to reveal more information about the ear (1), he is keeping mum about the second one.
