Angry MBA Charger

I just bought the new MacBook Air 13.3" and I use the charger and every time I use the charger it gets extremely hot. Is this a technical problem or does it happen to everyone. Because I dont want to buy a new charger because they are extremely expensive.

Thanks,
MacBookAir13

Power supplies always get hot. It's not a surprise when you think about the amount of energy that goes through it. Nothing to worry about

plus, if you do have issues beyond the heat, Apple will replace it under warranty.

they've replaced the one for my MBP twice now.
