    I have been using an amazon kindle usb cable and electrical outlet plug to charge my Dinc for all long time never a problem.

    Tonight I charged it up for an hour and my phone rang the Dinc was SMOKIN HOT and the amazon plug was burning and melting plastic on the small end of the plug. WTH happened? Why all of a sudden and do you think I could have damaged mi DInc? It seems to work fine but does smell like burning electronics.

    thanks for any insight.

    In my opinion, if you have insurance on your phone. I'd certainly take it in to Verizon and see what they say? Maybe they will tell you to get a new phone or be able to tell you otherwise on what you should do.

    Have you possibly tried turning off the phone to let it set for about an hour? Maybe it smelled like burning electronics because it was still pretty warm. I don't know, that's about what I would do.

    If you have insurance you can file a claim (itll cost you money though). I'd try to wait it out for a bit.

    If you dont have insurance, try to do a warranty exchange. Just dont tell them that you used a different charger as they might say "you should only use the charger that it came with from HTC"

    So far so good. Its working. I will test it out. Is it possible its the outlet that is messed up or the charger?

    Again not sure why it happened now after all this time.

    thanks

    Look at the transformer for the Kindle charger and check out the specs. What is the output voltage and the output mAh rating?

    I had one of those Verizon branded "green" chargers and the pinning the micro usb end became dislodged and ky phone wouldn't charge. Maybe your's did the same but sorted ii causing your charger to fry.
