    I have a question about Battery Temperature? What is too hot? What is normal?

    Today on my LG optimus Slider, I was playing "Coin Pirates" for about 55 minutes continues. My phone was also plugged into the wall charger.

    My battery got very hot.

    So after a while of playing I removed the back part of the snap on plastic case I have, knowing this wasn't helping.

    I have "Battery indicator" installed which shows the battery temperature and it showed 127 (F) degrees or 53 (C) degrees.

    I have heard its normal for these batteries to get hot, while surfing, etc.

    The phone is not turning off.

    I cannot find the specs for the battery such as normal temp.

    Should I be concerned?

    Thank You.

    First of all I don't know what is too hot or normal battery temperature.

    I was charging my OV slider in the car, using the GPS and running Google Navigation for about an hour when I received a pop-up warning on the screen stating something like the battery was too hot, unplug the charger. I unplugged the charger and cleared the warning message. The too hot message reappeared a couple more times then ceased as the battery/phone cooled below the warning threshold. My phone was sitting in a cup holder and was not getting much air circulation. I've used this same configuration many times on my motorcycle with no issues, but have lots of air circulation.

    If your phone is above 105 degrees (You can check it out on battery notifier app) than it is too hot.
