Default Battery overheating!

Whenever I plug in my Fuze to my computer, the battery overheats(about 20 minutes). It actually gets pretty hot, not just "warm". So, is this common? Or is it just my Fuze?

unfortunately I think it's your Fuze. I had my 8 gig Fuze Since April and have had no overheating problems

I'd seriously consider not charging it and sending it in ASAP, otherwise you run the risk of sending that battery into thermal runaway, which means BOOM!

I forgot to mention this earlier but when I charge my Sansa's (I have 2), I usually use a USB wall adapter instead of charging via computer....if that means anything...
