OUCH!!! hot ibook powerbrick.

Ok, so It's probably nothing, but I've noticed that the powerbrick for my ibook g3 (12") sometimes gets extremely hot. not like light a curtain on fire hot, but probably make a baby cry hot. Is that normal? has anyone else had this prob?
who needs a space heater when you have a G5?

Same here, on my 12" G3 iBook. Also happens with my 2 PowerBooks. I wouldn't worry about it (unless a baby starts crying or the curtains catch on fire.)

I did have a power brick go south on my though. The part where the cord enters the plug became frayed exposing the wires. It last another few weeks after that, then didn't work anymore. I wouldn't worry about it though, and I'm not trying to make you paranoid or anything.

The AC adapters are good in winter though
