My charger gets really hot after 30 to 45 minutes of charging, is this normal?
Yes. Unless it melts.
Thanks, this is my first MacBook so I don't want things to go wrong.
how hot exactly? too hold to touch?
mine does that too, I assume it's normal, especially for the 85w adapters.
Like others have said, it's normal.
It's not too hot, just hotter then my usual PC chargers. And does anyone know is it better to use the AC cord or use wall adapter?
Just don't use it to warm up your crotch while you're sleeping during winter.
Not a good idea.
Both are just as efficient. The wall adapter is just in case you use your charger only at a desk. You can get rid of some cord so it's not as much of a pain to operate. However, if you're more mobile, or use your computer intensely while away from your desk, they give you an AC cord so that you can plug and play wherever.
NORMAL! Completely fine, like others said. If it didn't melt or start burning, it's all good.
Is this someone speaking from experience HAHA! JKs!
The upside to the hot charger is that you have a convenient foot warmer in the winter.
Mine also heats up, I have a fan so I just put it on my desk and the fan cools it. It also does make a fantastic foot warmer in the winter!
I've actually found that my charger doesn't get all that hot - but from what friends have told me, yes it's pretty normal for it to get hot.
It depends on how much you're using the computer. The more taxing your use, the more power it needs, and then the charger works harder to provide it, and gets hotter.
If you're just checking your email, the charger will probably be just a tad warm, but in my experience if you're rendering movies or something of that sort it will definitely get pretty toasty.
I leave my Book off when I charge it, so it charges faster.
I used an IR temp gun on my macbook pro charger and it registered 181 degrees on the side facing up and the bottom side was 214 degrees when I flipped it over.
Is that too hot?
