Why does the charger get hot when plugged in?
Think with me: when you put something to charge, the charger will take a little energy from the socket to take it to your cell phone battery, right? It turns out that outlets have between 110 and 220 volts, while cell phone chargers have 5 volts.

It’s a pretty big difference, right? And that’s why the charger gets hot, but it’s not a cause for concern! The chargers are prepared to withstand this heat, with internal heatsinks that reduce excessive heat.

Oh! It’s common to heat up the charger, but it’s never going to be a big heat. If you touch the charger and find that you can’t hold it in your hand, it’s because you have a problem with the dissipation, see. In these cases, it’s important to have a new charger, so you don’t have problems with your cell phone battery!
