Today after approx. 30 minutes of charging my iPhone 4S I heard a sound and the electricity in the apartment went dead… I looked around trying to identify the source of the problem and found the iPhone charger black and partly melted. The charger was extremely hot. Anyone who can tell my what the problem is? Is it only a bad charger or can the source of the problem be traced to something in the electric system. I get real sceptic when electric accessories start melting like this.

Anyone with the same experience?

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1, iPhone charger

    Same thing happened to me today but luckily I managed to yank the cord out before it started a fire.  It is charred in the inside and while it works now I'm afraid the same thing will happen again.
