Fast charger.

Fast charger.

PostPosted by Cleoriff » Thu Jan 12, 2017 4:27 pm

My Note 4 came with a fast charger. Been brilliant. Last night whilst on charge I picked the phone up and was shocked at the heat of the charger port which plugs into the phone. The phone wasn't hot just the charger connector. Advice to bin it and get a new one?
No problem if so. ...but I would like to know WHY it got so hot? :(

I'd look for muck in the charging port first.
Sounds like it was drawing too much current which would happen if the flow was restricted by muck.

I think it must be the cable (hardware thereof :lol )
I have two fast chargers. Just tried the 2nd one and it's fine. No overheating at all ....

But apparently the fast drain fb bug can have an adverse effect on fast charging too http://lifehacker.com/facebook-and-mess ... 1791109931

Makes sense, if fb messenger is drawing whilst charger is in fast mode, it will stay in fast mode longer, creating more heat and slower charge times
