    All wall warts get warm when they're doing work. Once the iPad is fully charged, the wall charger will cool down. Perfectly normal.

    I know that the iPad 3d gen can get a little hot at some points. I was just wondering at what point it should get warm when I am playing a game like Infinity Blade. Can anyone tell me when the iPad gets hot on other games too?

    I experienced it hot at the start of the charging period. But I'm not worried about it.
