Hot V1

No, I didn't steal it.

Just received my V1 today and hung it on the visor of the truck for about a half hour on the way home from work. It was VERY warm when I shut it off. Almost to the point of being uncomfortable to hold. Is this normal for these things?

I'll call Valentine tomorrow, but thought I would see what others experiences have been.

Thanks,

Sometimes you can get so fixated on the fact that you are right that you lose sight of the reality that it doesn't matter.

Some of the most asinine things people do are typically preceded by the two words "Watch this."

Mine does get "warm" I just don't consider it "hot" as in like my muffler.

They all do that...

Talked to Valentine today and he said that it is normal for it to run hot.

Contrary to what I thought was good for electronics, but haven't heard of these things dying an early death.

Thanks for the responses.
