I received this charger along with the set SKU 1359402. According to manual, safe operating temperature is 0-40 Celsius. After using the charger for about 30 minutes or so, it started becoming very hot and there's this funky smell like burning circuit. I checked the device's temperature using my thermal gun and it detects the temp around 50 Celsius. I also bought the I4 version and did not get the same issue. Both charger charged x2 CGR18650CH. Is it defective or this issue will straighten up after several use? Inputs are appreciated for this will make me decide whether i will open a ticket or not.

Open a ticket : I got the same set, and used the I2 non stop to charge all the bats I had around, meaning the ones you talk about, from the set, the 2600 mAh (SKU 1170700) and others I had with a lava. The charger got warm, a little, I'd say between 30 and 35°C (nothing to mesure it) but nothing worse happened.
