PlayBook overheating when charging!

My PlayBook overheats when it is charging but only when I am using it. Is it becuase it is using a lot of power or something, is it known to do this?

 

Thank you

Re: PlayBook overheating when charging!

Define 'overheating'. Mine gets really warm if the rapid charger is plugged in and I'm playing a video intensive game while also connected to the internet.

 

This appears to be normal. I can cause it to heat up even more if I change the General mode setting from Default to Showcase then run multiple apps at the same time. But at no time does my PB 'overheat'. It just gets really warm.

Its gets really hot, so hot you can barley touch it, but itnonly happs when the screen is on, but not when the screen is off.

I have 3 playbooks at home and none get too hot to the touch when charging and playing, they do get warm though.

 

Do you have a temp probe so you could see how hot it is getting?

I have noticed that now it has gone through battery cycles it does not get as hot! So it is alright now, thank you for your help
