    Exclamation Charger gets hot when charging

    Is this cause for alarm? I only got this thing a couple of weeks ago, and I got it second hand.

    Please LMK if I'm doing anything wrong, or if I need to look into buying a new charger or something.

    TIA
    I'm a super-duper newb.... go easy!

    Hi again Frog

    Its fine - it can get quite warm, it works at quite a high voltage for a charger,15v rather than the normal 5v. Which us why it can fully charge in 2.5 hours or so.

    Switch the charger around in the wall socket.

    In the UK we have three pins that only go in one way - so I wouldn't have thought of that

    Mine got so hot it tripped the thermal switch and stopped charging. I had to put it in the freezer to get it to work again.

    Too hot seems to be the norm with these things. To keep mine cool? I never plug it in next to other sources of heat (like other chargers on a power-bar), and I keep it up off the floor so that the nice cooling air can get to it and away--carpet is an excellent insulator. I like to keep it on an extension cord (to compensate for the too-short cable) as well, which I often hang out over the edge of the table into lovely, cooling space...

    ... only once have I needed to resort to freezing that sucker, as result. I've even considered mounting it to an old computer fan... .. but I don't want to put up with the noise..
