It's faint, but whenever I plug my phone into the charger, the charger makes this high pitched buzzing/whistling noise. I checked with multiple outlets and it does it for each one. Is this normal and/or safe? I just don't want the charger not be fully charging my battery, and have my overall battery life be affected, and I want to know if it's a safety issue. Has this happened with anyone else? It's always done this too.

I've got various chargers for different devices and one of them does make a high buzzing sound in use. Also, my Nexus 5 sometimes does it when charging - the phone itself, not the charger. I assume it's a bad soldered connection or something. If you're in any doubt, get another charger.

I've got the same thing. It's like a chirping. At first when I was chatting my phone I thought there was a cricket in my wall. I'm personally not worried about it but you can always try getting another charger.

There's a little coil in the charger, with a metallic core, in the charger. It sounds as if the core is slightly loose. Nothing that will cause a problem, just annoying.
