tingling from charging iPhone5

I've had an iPhone 5 since October 2012 and it was bought from Vodafone UK.
I too get that tingling and I just held the phone in my right hand while rubbing my left hand along the radiator and the tingling is coming from the radiator! I release the phone and the tingling disappears.
The lead and charger plug was straight out of the box so is genuine.

It's completely normal.

I'm very sensitive to all electric flow systems, and have had a tingling/vibrating sensation with every apple handheld/laptop device I've ever owned, while it is plugged in. Although the sensation changes slightly with each device (because of differing construction) it is always present. With iPhone 5 it sort of feels like a sticky surface on the rear when I slide my finger on the metal. I also accentuates the feeling of the height of the non-matte Apple logo.

I only use the charger that comes with the phone. Don't worry about your product, no need to take it in for servicing.
