    Wondering could anyone help me?

    My samsung s5 charger plug was very very hot, and then cut off charging my phone, is there any known fault with the plug socket themselves or has it just overheated because it is faulty. the usb still charges my phone from a usb socket.

    Are you referring to the plug that goes into the wall socket, or that which goes into the phone?

    The actual plug that goes into the socket, it was extremely hot and cut out, not sure if it is a reconised fault or i could just have a faulty plug

    Is it the one that came with the device or one you purchased elsewhere?

    Take it back to where you purchased it and have them replace it, including the cable that goes with it. Sounds like a short in the plug.

    Replace it with Samsung products as the 3rd party stuff is not reliable.
