MBP wall charger buzzing...

does the wall charger on a mb/mbp normally buzz a little bit or should it be completely silent? mine is making a slight buzzing, only slight mind but I'm curious...

AC to DC adapters tend to make a weak buzz. It's yet another electronic.

also..if you're running 220v it will probably make a buzz. if it starts to get hot (more than normal), you may want to get it checked.

Mine does the same. Makes a slight buzzing noise and gets warm but not waaay to hot.

I'm in Ireland but I notice when I head to the continent using the 2 pin plugs the adapter gets slightly warmer. Strange....
