Thread: wifi + charging = warm?

  1. #1
    Default wifi + charging = warm?
    I had an active wifi connection for a half-hour this morning, copying files via ssh to my iPhone. (1.1.3, jailbroken, disabled auto-lock for the duration.)

    The phone was plugged into the dock to stay charged while I copied files. When I pulled the phone off the dock afterwards, I was surprised that the phone was so warm to the touch. It seemed the screen was warmer than the back.

    Is this normal?

    I confess I've been concerned about running warm, ever since I recently charged my phone with an old iPod (12v) brick/firewire, and the phone got extremely warm. I'm looking for reassurance that what I describe above is expected behavior.
