Hello, it is normal for the adapters to get pretty hot, almost too hot to touch. Should not be a problem to the laptop.

My samsung laptop charger gets hot and starts to melt when pluged in and powered up and does the same if i take the battery out please helptried a new battery and new charger could it be the jack on the...

I'm unclear however
Does the new charger get too hot? If so the problem is not the charger or the socket.
Does the laptop work with the new charger plugged in but no battery? If so the socket on the laptop is probably ok
Is the actual charger melting or is it just the plug that goes in the laptop that's getting hot, if it is the plug on both chargers then the socket will need repairing or resoldering, they are a weak point, the soldered pins go high resistance and can generate a lot of heat around the plug and socket. Its usually obvious if the socket is faulty because as you move the plug it makes contact intermittently.
DONT USE THE CHARGER THAT'S MELTING and if both are getting hot have the socket repaired.
If only the one charger getting hot the short is probably in the plug on that charger but read on
On a different note the genuine chargers should be over current protected and overheat protected, they should never melt.

Could be.Those batteries leak charge even when not in use.I would let it go for 24-48 hours just to be sure.Unless the batteries or charger becomes very hot.

Battery charger getting too hot. I have a skil 14.4 drill and flashlight set with two batteries. I noticed today the battery charger is getting very hot when I plug it in to recharge a battery for this...

Chargers get hot when charging. If you are concerned about yours ... I suggest you not leave them alone while charging.

Heat is the enemy of batteries, BTW.

14.4 drills are not as capable as higher voltages. It may be time for a new drill.

you could get new batteries ... but the batteries will probably be almost the price of a new higher volt drill.

If I wre in the marker, Id be looking at the Rigid line ... batteries interchangable and the entire thing is guaranteed for life period. Check em out at the manufacturers web site.

I hope you found this information valuable.

If you did, please leave positive comments. If you did not, my name is Joe Blow and I never said that at all!

Where can I get a new charger, I lost mine


You can try calling Target Customer Service 1.800.440.0680 and inquire cost & availability of the charger for the TruTech PVS12701.

Alternately, you can just look for an AC adapter/charger that has the following specs:
Input Voltage - your country's standard AC mains;
Output Voltage - 12VDC
Output Current - at least 1.5 Amp (the higher the better)
Connector - one that will fit and match the polarity of the TruTech PVS12701. (am guessing crown type center positive, pls confirm with the store. It may also help to bring along the unit when doing the purchase over the counter)

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
