    Cool power charger getting hot?

    Having read several items about the charger supplied and its overheating and it seems some failures ?
    Isn't this a problem to be sorted under guarantee as it appears the heat protection is not that good doesnt it?
    I have now rigged up a small fan to blow air around my charger when it is "working" and this does reduce the case temperature quite a bit.
    In my experience as a Radio Amateur the failure rate of electronic components is often down to there running over hot.
    This is in this case not the best design is it ? But try a fan and see what you think.
    The sooner a better power charge is available at reasonable price the better and a car charger would be very welcome.
    In my view it is a pity the tramnsformer was sent out with such a good desing but this it seems was forgotten when the charger was stuck in the box !
    Any opinions gents?

    It does get very hot. I have noticed but not given it much though. I do have other ways to connect USB to a power outlet, I guess I could try one of those, but they probably wont have the same voltage. I read somewhere that the screen can be charged through USB alone, but when docked, it needs the charger.

    I agree, the OEM charger gets way too hot. Asus needs to take a lesson from Motorola. The Xoom's charger runs much cooler and the cord is 8 feet long!!!

    lol a fan to cool it down. why would anyone go to that much trouble? The consumer shouldnt have to. Almost all AC chargers I've used get warm to some degree. This is normal. They have a specified safety rating before being released to the consumer. If you are that worried, contact Asus but they will tell you it's normal to get hot.

    My first TF (B5O) got to hot to touch when charging. My new TF (B7O) stays cooler and is hot to the touch but won't burn your hand.

    Any other charger may not get as hot but it will take about 10 times longer if using a USB charger.

    Exclamation Does Your Charger Get Very Hot?

    Some time ago I read that most are reporting that their chargers are very hot while charging.
    I do not have this issue. In-fact, my charger gets warm but never hot.
    I opened the charger and noticed the build number. Mine is 110215-11. I wonder if different build numbers (if there are different numbers) are experiencing anything other then just warm when charging. Let's find out.....
