Thread: Belkin Auto Kit+iPhone=Hot (not the good kind but heat hot)

    Default Belkin Auto Kit+iPhone=Hot (not the good kind but heat hot)
    I bought a belkin auto kit specifically because of the car charger as well as the built-in aux port where you can get audio. However, I notice that the iphone gets unusually hot when I plug it in and its freaking me out a bit. Anyone else experiencing this same issue with non made for iphone chargers? I used an old wall charger for charging my iphone and noticed the same issue as well.

    Also, anyone know how much power voltage the iphone takes versus a regular ipod or nano?

    i know someone whos battery overheated and pretty much ruined his phone.

    he plugged it into a fm transmitter at best buy and after about 10 mins in it..voila screwed it up

    dont use the belkin.

    it uses 12volts to the firewire charge port.

    i dont have any idea why apple left those connections active for charging on the iphone in the first place. they are seperate pins from USB charging. very stupid move on apples part.

    ok! i def wont use the belkin! but any recomends on a fm transmitter/charger that would work with the iphone. ive read some mixed info and would love to hear a clear answer! even if there isnt a fm transmitter/charger combo that is good for the iphone id settle for a really good recomend on just an fm transmitter.
