    I've never noticed this before, but I was just using my iPad while charging ( apple charge cord) and the back of it got pretty warm. Is that typical?
    Thanks Annette

    I've not noticed that on my iPad 1 or 2, but I use only a TPU silicone back on both devices. (I dislike portfolio cases and such.)

    I read iPad 1's online manual awhile ago, and it said not to charge with the iPad in a case. The beefier the case, the more likely it will contribute to heating, I'm guessing.

    This can also be a sign of the battery on the way out. How old is your iPad?

    My iPad2 is charging right now. I've had it on for about an hour and the back is as cooooool as a cucumber.

    I do have it in a leather portfolio, but it's never gotten hot while charging before. Also...this is a apple charge cord but it's the one with the "extension" in the middle. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?

    No, it shouldn't do that. Even when I charge mine in the case, it's never warm.

    I havnt had a problem with the back heating up when Im charging it. I sometimes use a case but usually I charge the unit while its naked and I dont seem to have any issues with the back heating up.

    My power pack certainly heats up when charging, but not the device itself. It does heat up somewhat when playing intensive games or videos sometimes though.
