    I'm not sure what's going on. Anyone else experience this liquid next to the gold connector prong. I get this after charging my TB48 batteries.

    *Update*

    Charged 2 batteries now, the liquid is still coming back. I cleaned the area twice before I charged the 2 batteries. Charging my last battery as we speak. I have a feeling it'll appear again when I remove the battery. Any thoughts on why this is happening?

    Thank you.

    Does the cable get hot while it's charging , maybe something's melting . Whatever it is obviously that isn't normal and could possibly risk an electrical short or a fire...

    A weird one to be sure! I don't think there's anything inside the plug that would cause that. Is it possible that it's coming from the battery?

    Any water/condensation that could have got into the charger's plug?

    Not sure to be honest. Maybe moisture got trapped inside? I got no idea. I put a small bag of those moisture packs into my inspire case. Let's see if that works.

    The battery shouldn't be leaking :p Don't these batteries burst in flame if it was hit hard or punctured.
