    Has anyone noticed how hot the charger becomes after about 15 minutes?

    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.

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