What causes my laptop adopter or charger to heat up and become so hot? I am currently using a HP laptop and the ever since I bought this machine, I have realized that whenever I plug in the adopter to charge my battery, it becomes so hot and sometimes I just ought to unplug it to make it cool off. I wish to know whether that is normal and what are the conditions contributing to that? Thank you.

I guess this is your first time to have a laptop. The heating of the charger when charging your laptop is very normal and will not damage either your computer or the charger itself. The charger is designed to withstand the heat produced as you charge the battery. The heating of the charger is because of electricity.

It’s a fact that electricity produces heat. When there is a consumption of electricity, it produces heat. That’s the reason why your charger gets hot. Whenever you charge the battery of your laptop, avoid disconnecting the charger if the battery is not yet full. If you do this very often, your battery might get damaged and will shorten its life.

When charging the battery of your laptop, make sure the battery is already full before you disconnect the charger so the charging of the machine will not be interrupted. The lifespan of the battery is not that long and will eventually wear out after several months of use. So you need to take good care of it whenever you need to recharge it.
