Mine started melting :O
Yes...After 3 months of every other day use, Unplugging after most useage.
This may be one out of thousand odds, that's still more than I care to gamble on.
I smelt something hot or burning, so I took a closer look and the left side had a soft spot on the plastic (Melting)WTH!
Factory has a 18 month warranty, Amazone didn't wanna to RMA it until I called Nitecore.
So don't leave the house with it plugged in, Or at least check your home owner/ rental Ins. policy..
See Amazone comments...

We should always keep a close eye on charging batteries. We should also place the charger in a fireproof container (like a steel pot without a lid). Always a risk of battery fire.

I always charge mine in a lipo safe charging bag, better safe than sorry! I noticed mine gets warm but I'll be keeping a closer eye on it now
