New Gopro 8 Hot when charging

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

I have the Sandisk microsd 32gb (inside the camera) that came with the gopro bundle.

Hi @dee228

 

Would you be able to test another charging adapter?

Let us know how it goes.
