How hot is normal for iPad charger
Had my iPad for only 3 days.
First time I charged it no issues.
After using it a lot for a day and a half battery down to 40% so though i better charge it up over night.
This morning when I went to unplug it I noticed the charger was pretty hot. Not too hot to touch, but far hotter that my iPhone charger ever gets. (as warm as a warmed plate in a restaurant.).
Is this normal or is my charger stuffed?
(yes, I made sure it was my iPad not my iPhone charger I used.)

Mine gets quite warm, I guess. But (obviously) only when pushing a lot of juice; as soon as 100% is near, it cools to ambient.
Yes, it's warmer than the iPod and iPhone versions, but the iPad is noted to require a greater current for charging, and the charger itself has twice the rated output of the others. A little more heat is expected.
Warm (not hot) plate seems a good analogy.

I have noticed mine getting hot and then cooling off when it gets close to 100% as was said in a previos post. Whenever it was hot, I unplugged the USB cord from the brick and the metal part was almost too hot to touch. I have mine plugged into an extension cord so I didn't know if that may have caused it. I haven't tested it without the extension cord.
