iPad charging cord melts, iPad severely overheats (pics)

Posted on Friday, July 16 2010 @ 21:08:27 CEST by

The Tech Report writes the iPad from one of their readers nearly went up in flames:
Right before Steve Jobs began talking this morning, TR forum regular Forge posted a rather worrying story about his iPad charging cord melting while the device was sitting on his nightstand—and the iPad itself becoming hot enough to cause him to drop and break it.

The incident reportedly happened around 5:00 AM, when he noticed the smell of burning plastic. He puled out his iPad's charging cord, which was "very melty, but more or less in one piece," and grabbed the iPad, only to drop the device reflexively because of the searing heat.
