Overheating problems
:[ I noticed that my chager has been extreamely hot...

it happened while the battery was charging and while i had taken the battery out....

is this normal or my charger is damaged???

The chargers tend to get pretty warm, there have been instances where they have melted on people.

Is it so hot that you can barely hold it or is it just uncomfortably warm?

actually both.. that's why im worried...

Mine does that too. I don't think there is anything to worry about. It has been doing it for some time, and has not cause any problems yet.

i've been trying a few things... as soon as the battery is charged the it cools off a lit bit.... and if we use less programs at the same time it also cools down a lit bit....

i believe that when its charging and if we are using a lot of resources the adapter overheats...

in my opinion the adapter should have a ventilator....

my previous computer, an asus, had it never overheated....

by the way.... i disagree with the apple care... if it melts or get damaged we need to buy a new one??

what happened to the warranty?

after the purchase we have 6 months.... (battery and adapter only)

after that we are on our own....
