Should I be concerned that my Nokia 2600 is getting really hot?

Asked by bluemukaki (4327points) January 27th, 2008

The battery pack seems to be running really hot, often when the charger is plugged in but sometimes at random times. The battery model had a recall but my serial number didn’t check out.
Is there something I should be doing (like running screaming to the nearest bunker)?

Well, yes you should be very concerned. Overheating batteries are at a high risk of causing fires, so my suggestion is that you head over to your nearest electronics store and replace the battery ASAP!

Yes…get it checked out regardless of your number not being on the recall list (it might be another error on the manufacturers behalf). Its better to be safe than sorry.

It is normal for batteries to get a little warm when being charged but they shouldn’t be getting “hot” when it’s not charging. Sometimes manufacturers try to constrict the scope of a recall as much as possible. Your model could still be affected. You could also just have a fluke defective one. Either way, you definitely should get that checked out.

And stop using it unless you need to call 911 on the way to the store – and then wear your flame-proof suit.
