    The CABLE gets hot? That is really weird. Never heard of that happening with any USB cable, ever. Is it a genuine Apple item?

    It's not unusual for chargers to get warm.

    It's hard to describe temperatures, though. I've got several chargers, so I have comparison for what's "reasonably" warm. That's vs. one time when I charged and the charger got "unreasonably" hot. In that case, I just unplugged and let things cool down. Still don't know what happened, and the charger hasn't heated up crazily since.
