    I have an Anker Power Core 20100 power bank which I have used only a handful of times since I bought it a couple of months ago and have just started to notice that it is making my iphone xr incredibly hot within about 10-15 mins. I have tested the phone with the wall charger that it came with and after 30 mins there is no heat at all. Could it be the cable or the powerbank (or both)? The cable is one that I bought online and so I will test it with the Apple cable to see if that makes a difference. I am concerned about doing damage to my phone.

    You should be concerned as one of the batteries worst enemies is heat!

    Hope you get it worked out.

    I have also noticed that my ipad charger plug gets incredibly hot - it is about 4 years old. The ipad itself doesn't get particularly hot, though. Would it be worth replacing it?

    My iPad charger gets hot also, all Apple chargers seem to. Until it dies I wouldn’t worry about it.

    Neither should be getting “incredibly hot”.

    Have you tried all your chargers in a different building? Maybe there’s something off about the wiring you’re dealing with. I’m no electrician but I would test the chargers out in a different building so I could rule out the need to call an electrician.

    Good point but the only issue is with the phone getting hot when charging with the power bank which is not connected to any sockets in the house. When charging from the socket with the Apple charger, there is no problem.
