Default Some questions about chargers

Okay im not a huge laptop pesron. so i have some questions that might seem dumb but ya

My dad has a refurbished Latitude D620. Its working slick so far.

But it came with a 65 watt Charger. The charger gets hot to the touch and i was wondering if thats normal??

My HP laptop charger gets pretty warm but i wouldn't say its hot. so idk.

And another thing, i looked and dell has 65 watt and 90 watt chargers for the latitude d620.

if i got a 90watt charger would the charger run a little cooler than the 65watt one? or do dell chargers just run hot?

Thanks all

Pretty much all laptops chargers will warm up a lot after an hour or so of use. So yes, that's normal. No need to do anything about it Especially since they make handy hand-warmers in the winter.
