    Wow. That could be extremely dangerous. Maybe it was just a hardware fault?

    Something like that it still works just fine and I love it but honestly it was pretty crazy when I unplugged it from the back of my TV I nearly dropped it

    Were you using the original power plug that came with the chromecast?
