    ViewPoint EVO charger HOT!

    I just got the single-light one from Performance and I'm charging for the first time. The part that has the LED is about to melt...

    Anyone have one of these? How hot is too hot?

    Thanks

    Tribe: They get hot, just the way it is. I got a smart charger and the attached the evo carger cord to the smert charger. This way I will not overcharge the battery.

    Where do you commute to? I commute from the Barns of Wolftrap to 17th & Gst downtown DC.

    Thanks! glad to know it's normal... I have a good charger from my RC era that I think I'll be using instead.

    I did my first commute yesterday and I'm going tomorrow again :-) from Gallows and Electric Ave. to Upper Marlboro, MD

    EDIT: I do 2 times a week to "I"st and 24th (Washington Circle) but it's the "suit" part of my job so I have to work out the shower part.
