    Charger extremely hot?
    I used my Macbook all day and let the battery drain to the end. Now I am charging it, and the charger that plugs into the wall is very very hot. Is this a normal thing? If it helps, I am not running many apps right now while it is charging, just have Firefox opened up.

    Hi there,
    I have a macbook too and I have to agree with you that it get's really hot, to the point I can't even hold it for a long period of time. From what I have read on other forums, this appears to be normal.
    I'm pretty cautions with it, i don't leave the charger on my couch / sofa that the heat may damage it. Especially if you have a leather couch.

    It's very normal, all laptops have this charger heat to some degree.

    My HP laptop heats up so much internally with such an inadequate fan that games will start to lag. The power adapter on my Toshiba laptop, I tried to pick it up after running on AC for a couple of hours, and nearly burnt myself, had to pick it up by the cord to comfortably hold it. I suppose its normal, after all, transformers for anything generate a lot of heat.

    Yes, it'll get hot - make sure you've pulled off the sticky plastic film covering that it came with, it can melt.

    I judge you when you use poor grammar.
