Default Charger getting hot | Controller for quake

Hi guys, I got 2 subject so I thought I'll just make one thread for this.

I'm from EU so I used my US charger with an other plug. Seemed to
work great, doesn't complain like it does with my HTC phone charger.

But now the charger gets pretty hot, along with the USBplug that is in the charger. Should I be worried? I would say its about 50-70celsius.

So I got Quake from preware, but it doesn't work with touch only (even tho there r touch controls?) so Im wondering if its possible to get it working with this:
http://icontrolpad.com/

That would be nice with the snes emulator also so I might buy it, its very expensive tho but I like the oldschool'ness of it.

You're likely to burn it out if you keep using it, don't leave it on unattended.

Sure? Does your get hot?

The charger should handle ~220v as we got here. So I don't get why this shouldn't work.

Isnt there a way to find a compatible European charger without paying 30$ for the travel pack?

Pretty much any micro-USB charge will charge the Touchpad, it is just some will be quicker than others. I am charging from the USB port on my laptop at the moment and it has upped the charge by 8% in the last hour or so with the screen off.

Yeah but the normal one gives about 30% on that time. But as I said, it should work, no problem. I don't think its uncommon for it to get hot but I'm not sure tho

My official charger gets quite warm, together with the USB plug. Clearly that is the only device that will charge at full speed and without a warning on the screen. However, as I was trying to point out, you don't have to go down the official charger route if you are prepared to either accept the on-screen warning or a slower charge rate. The Blackberry Playbook charger gives 5V 2A and although it comes up with the on-screen warning charges almost as quickly as the official unit.

I bought one of these http://www.mymemory.co.uk/iPod---iPa...od_iPhone_iPad the other day, rated at 2.1 amps (though the unit shows 3 amps). I get the dire message about not enough voltage or current but it works fine and quickly. Obviously I don't use the supplied Apple cable...
