I purchase a MacBook last week and I noticed that the battery indicator ( the lights indicator on the battery ) keeps blinking whenever I plug the power adapter. And when I plug the power adapter to the computer, both the computer and the power adapter are much warmer than my powerbook's. Are these symptoms normal? Do I need to raise a concern regarding overheating with this battery, since I've updated the needed firmware for the battery. Thanks for reading my problems and looking forward to read your responds.

Best,

DionzAre you saying the green lights on the bottom of the battery itself blink when you plug the MacBook in?If so,this is normal behavior.The lights blink while the battery is charging.Also,The MacBook and power adapter do get warmer than my old PowerBook did while charging.Without knowing exact temperatures you're experiencing,I can't be positive,but I believe your MacBook is OK.With that said,if you feel the heat is excessive,Definitly contact AppleCare.JimPowerBook G3 500 Mhz "Pismo"/ 2.0Ghz BlackBook 2GB OWC RAM   Mac OS X (10.4.9)

You might try to reset.SMC/PMU http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=303319PRAM http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=2238If that doesn't help you need to take it in and have apple look at it. You have a 14 day return period and it sounds like there is a problem. After the 14 days you will have to go through a warranty repair.Mort
