Warm Belkin 4 Port USB Hub

Should my 4 port Belkin USB hub get warm over where the power adaptor plugs in? It isn't really hot just warm to touch.

Yes, it's a powered hub and will get slightly warm.

If you use it's capabilities to the maximum it could get very warm, since each USB connection is rated at up to half an amp current for powering the devices plugged into it. A four way hub could therefore pass 10 watts, like a small light bulb trapped in that small case.
