Charger and Charging dock overheat

Post by Idahitman » Tue Mar 28, 2017 10:29 pm

I just received my new replacement dron today and began an initial charge of the controller and batteries. After about 30 minutes I had to leave for work and decided to check on charging.well its's a good thing I did because the charging dock, specifically the small black rectangle on the bottom with XIRO and RoHS is extremely hot. To the point it would burn you if you held it longer than a second. Also very warm is the AC adapter. However the battery is NOT even warm (that's good) Of course here we go again.....contacted XIRo Support and they are escalating the case... Not sure if anyone else has had this issue. Stuck again with a new non working situation. Not very impressed with the quality right now.

Just put the charger on its side when charging to let the heat sink cool in the ambient air. The regulator (under the sticker)will always get hot, just a side product of making things smaller, it is normal.
