Default HP DV6704 AC adapter temp

Hi guys, it's few week now that my laptop AC adapter is getting up. I was jst worry about, can a temp around 55-60 can be damageable for the power supply bloc or it's something that happen on many other lappy? I don't really want to deal with my warranty since I can't actually lose the laptop ( for school ).

Thx

If it really is only running at 55-60C, then that's fine.

Well that's the temp I guess by hand but it's probably not far from that. I was only wondering since it never run like that before. But if it's fine thenYay
Thx zero!

Power adapters can indeed roast and be just fine.

they can get hot indeed, but if you cant keep your hand on it for long? go to the store and try the one they have tehre for tests. see a difference? have it changed. not worth burning down the house for a 20 dollar adapter.
now, i have some dell cp(something) adapters from ages past. one of them gets melting hot, still works after all these years. would i leave it on unattended? nope

My Dell XPS m1330 one gets burning hot too, more so when the laptop is running and charging at the same time. It's nearly untouchable at times. No issues thus far though.

I leave mine plugged in 24/7, granted the laptop is only charging/running when I'm home. If it's plugged in doing nothing, it doesn't get warm at all. Though I guess it's sucking up some standby power though.

If my electricity are good ( and it's a long time ago ) a loop that can't go nowhere ( when power have no out source ) it won't suck any power from the wall...but, I am probably wrong, let zero correct me

All power supplies use a certain amount of standby power, but not very much.
