Just bought a the hdmi DV adaptor for my ipad, had it connected to a 23" Dell and was doing some light net surfing and charging at the same time and the adaptor and the bottom left part of the iPad 2 heated up quite a lot. I've often surf the net while charging and have never experienced this kind of heat up in my one year of owning this device. In fact, I can't really remember the ipad ever heating up from any kind of use. Is this the way it is or could it be a possible defect? edit: the amount of heat generated is similar to when 3G is switched on on the iPhone 3GS and the to a lesser extend, the iPhone 4S.
