At today’s event, along with the opening of Google’s flagship Pixel 6 series with the Tensor SoC, Google also unveiled the second generation of its Pixel Stand wireless charger.
The second generation Pixel Stand wireless charger is a white trapezoidal design made entirely of recycled TPU and polycarbonate materials and weighs 71g. The phone simply needs to be placed on its front to charge it. The second generation Pixel Stand wireless charger supports the Qi wireless charging protocol standard, notably with a maximum power output of 23W when charging Pixel 6 series phones, but only 15W when charging other PHONES that support the Qi wireless charging protocol.
The second-generation Pixel Stand wireless charger has a cooling fan built into the product to mitigate the extra heat caused by thermal power loss during wireless charging, and Google promises that the cooling fan will be almost completely silent at work.
Google second generation Pixel Stand wireless charger comes with a 30W usB-C port charger and a 1.5m USB C-to-C charging cable in addition to the wireless charger itself. Pre-orders for the Pixel Stand wireless charger are now available on Google’s store, but Google didn’t specify when it would go on sale at the event or on its website. It’s currently known to cost $79.
