    Overheating charger

    I have noticed that the wall charger that came with my tf700T gets very hot sometimes. Not all the time. I NEVER charge the device if I am not home. The charger seems to work fine as the tablet does get charged to 100%. However, I am wondering if this is a defective charger or common to that piece of equipment. The tablet is less than three months old, so it is still under warranty.

    That's a common complaint.

    Sometimes swapping the way you plug it in helps.

    I bought an after market charger and it solved the problem for me.

    Seeing as there is quite a bit of voltage/current going through the charger, it is kind of expected to get quite hot

    The after market one I bought doesn't get hot at all.

    Probably a more efficient cooling design but it is expected really that there is to be some kind of heat, as with anything that has lots of volts passing through it

    Actually there is a thermal switch inside the charger. If it gets hotter than the design limit it will cut off and you'll need to put it in a freezer to get it back to life, (really)

    That's why I bought a replacement, every time I used it the switch tripped.

    Very strange. My charger(s), the original that came with my 101 and now the one that came with my 201 have been perfect.

    Hot is a relative term but I don't think mine has ever gotten hotter than I thought it should.

    Thank you for your replies. I have chargers for other devices that barely get warm. Yes, leeshor, hot is a relative term, but I think mine gets hotter than it should. But, thank you for your input.

    My next question is, what brand of aftermarket should I get?
