Quite apart from the fire risk, if the charger is getting hot it's using my electricity to generate that heat. frown

Well, I guess we have to all put up still another post-it note by every electrical outlet.   I'm constantly seeing chargers left plugged in whenever we go do a fluff.  I should probably make it a habit of unplugging them if they're not actually charging anything.

we had a problem with this in the UK and it may be the same thing that caused this fire - not real chargers ones made in China coped and not properly fire safety tested - people buy them on ebay or car boot sales and they are basically fire traps - make sure you always buy these type of things from a proper shop

Well that's kinda scary to think about! We probably have 12 phone chargers a night plugged in. I have a i have an iPhone charger plugged in all the time. It's not warm at all. I wonder what kind it was?

Same here re plugged in, but none is near any sofas or couches. One is hanging on my desk against the moniter stand and another is coiled around a desk knob. Upstairs on a nightstand where it has been for months.
