My original iPad Air had to be replaced because of a hardware problem. Then my charging cord also had to be replaced. Now I am noticing that my charging plug is getting hot. Should I be concerned? Thanks. This is the plug on the end of the charging cord that came with my iPad, of course.

Make sure you are using the 10W/12W charger.
5W charger will get hot if you use it to charge the iPad.
