    A few months back, one of the guys in Richer Sounds Milton Keynes told me that they didn't stock the Pronto docking stations as there had been problems with charging units/batteries overheating and melting the plastic.

    As no-one appears to have reported this on these forums, I'm curious to know if there's any truth to this?

    I think this is probably nonsense....the docking station is made of a light alloy,and having had mine for nearly a year now,I've never found it to be more than slightly warm,even after an extended period charging a flat battery.
