My ego battery and charger are HOT during/after charging. Is that normal? Or is my 6 week old battery dying already?
That depends; which part of the battery gets hot?
A few cheap chargers can get warm, and transfer that heat to the battery's outer casing. Try cleaning the contact points, and if that doesn't fix it, just get a new/better charger.
If it's the center part of the battery that gets hot, it means that it's heating up from the inside, and that means:
stop using that battery right now. Your battery is damaged, and is about to fail, catastrophically.
Stop using both, immediately!
You'll have to sort out which is bad; the charger, the battery, or both. There's no practical way to test a charger or battery, without a multimeter.
If you don't have that tool, I'd just get a new battery and charger.
Do you know the brand of battery/charger you have? Do you have a picture?
Agree get rid of that battery and get it out of your home. My first Ego charger was junk so when I purchased my Joye C-twist batteries I purchased the Joye charger and no problems at all with the charger getting hot or the batteries.
it was my apollo stuff... all from apollo - got it from Apollo and not local smoke shop selling Apollo stuff
i am a bit freaked out by the warnings to get the battery out of the house and such ;-?
