New Gopro 8 Hot when charging

[ New ]

Hi All,

 

Just opened my gopro 8 and it gets pretty hot when charging.  USB is connected to iphone wall jack (small white square).

 

Is this a defect, it hasnt even been a week. Should I contact Gopro?

 

Thanks

Hi @dee228

 

Would you be able to test another charging adapter?

Let us know how it goes.
