I have the Pixel Stand 2 as well. Maybe you're still new to it, but, while I agree it's overall a good buy, it has problems to work around.
First, it's smart to make it cool the phone as it charges. That's great for everyone. And peace of mind that it's designed to charge this phone matters more than it should given how many chargers don't work or fall back to 5W.
And it's cute it does the little sunrise wake up thing in the morning. In a dark enough room with white walls it can actually put quite the effect into the room.
But, it crashes. A lot. It's a little computer that blinks its orange light when it's done booting, and it's easy to have it outright crash and just stop charging. You place your phone on the device, the phone does the animation to say it knows it's on the Stand, but the Stand just never starts charging the phone. If you're in and out in an hour you might not notice that quick charge you needed never happened, until it's too late - has happened to me over and over.
Google and phone manufacturers in general also just need to stop selling extremely expensive devices that are fundamentally too fragile to be handheld. You can make something expensive, handheld, or fragile, choose only 2. But if it's not gonna be cheap it had better be durable.
The Pixel Stand makes this worse 3x:
* Once you apply a case that distance between charger radio and gather antenna is farther, increasing heat and slowing down charge
* The Pixel Stand is shaped like a curved cradle for a Pixel 4, which is almost half the size of the 6 and 7 Pro, both of which want to fall right out of it and are pushed away from the antenna by being too large, and then
* A case - a must have given these are fragile $1000 devices - pushes it even further away
* The metal on the phone meant to help it cool from the air pushed by the Stands fans is blocked by the plastic case that transfers very little heat, and acts more like an insulator. A nice little oven for your battery that's susceptible to heat
I don't see a fix for most of this except for the case to be designed for this all to work properly (and the Stand to accommodate Pixel 5+s excessive size, or make the Pixel 8 much smaller)
