I believe the issue here is the DC charger. After reading the directions (again), it says charge using the AC charger for 20 hours before first use. I did that. I have since charged it after use, for 12 hrs. using the AC charger. No excessive heat noticed.
I was not really happy with the duration of use. It lasted 2 inspections, 2 days apart with no charge in between. I did use it quite a bit in the attic of a 80 year old house. K&T wiring covered with insulation and flooring.
The circuts were still being used.
I will only use the DC charger if I am in the truck and can monitor it. It would be interesting to see how many amps it is drawing on a DC charge.
