Xiaomi's Mi 55W Wireless Charging Stand has hit third-party retailers, and it is significantly cheaper than alternatives like the Google Pixel Stand. Xiaomi's wireless charger supports Qi EPP for fast-charging many modern smartphones, despite being designed to recharge the Mi 10 Ultra.
Alex Alderson,

The Mi 10 Ultra has a lot going for it, including its ability to charge wirelessly. However, while many modern flagship smartphones support wireless charging, few can recharge as quickly as the Mi 10 Ultra can. Xiaomi boasts that the Mi 10 Ultra can wirelessly charge at up to 50 W, a wattage that is well beyond what the capabilities of most smartphones.

The wireless charger that you need to charge at 50 W is reasonably-affordable, too. Xiaomi's Mi 55W Wireless Charging Stand is not yet available from the company directly in Europe, but it can be purchased from retailers like AliExpressGearbest and Banggood. The latter sells the charger for US$55.99, but Gearbest has it even cheaper at US$42.99. AliExpress has it even cheaper still at around US$37, though.

According to Xiaomi, its wireless charger can recharge the Mi 10 Ultra in 40 minutes and has an active fan to keep things cool. The charger supports Qi Extended Power Profile (EPP), so it should recharge other smartphones like the Pixel 4 series quickly, too. The Google Pixel Stand retails for US$69, so Xiaomi's effort could well be a better alternative, especially as it also includes a stand.
