    Yes it is, from what I can tell. My mini charger also gets quite warm.

    Burn your hand? No, that is not right. Chargers get warm...but they do not get hot enough to burn anything. That could start a fire. Take it to an apple store and let them replace it.

    This. I was assuming it wasn't that hot. Take it in immediately.

    When a charger gets that hot, there's very likely a short in the internal wiring. A replacement is definitely warranted.
