    Just got my phantom 4. Is it normal for the battery charger to get very hot while charging a battery ?
    My phantom 3 pro charger never got hot like this one.

    Everyone's opinion of hot is different. Any way you can measure the temp of it? Mine gets pretty hot but nothing I haven't seen to other chargers (including my macbook pro) when converting a lot of current to charge a high capacity battery.

    Are you charging both the quad battery and the RC at the same time? Mine got particularly hot when I did that... before I realized you weren't suppose to charge them at the same time.

    Edit: I realized after posting that you said you had a phantom 3, so you're probably already aware of the "don't charge RC and quad battery rule"...
