    Absolutely not - mine remains cool to the touch - but then I live in Scotland, where the ambient temperature isn't that high....

    The charger does warm up during the charging, this is caused by the charger converting the input voltage of 240V, or 110V, depending on your location to an output voltage of 5V. This conversion process is not 100% efficient, so some of the energy causes an increase in Entropy, through the only true universal waste form of energy: Heat.

    Not everyone has to agree with your point of views, but at some point they need to accept Them!

    My charger gets hot, too. I'm not going to sweat it unless there's a recall or it bursts into flames.
