Fluval spec iii question - LED issue

I just bought a Spec III and love it; however I have noticed something. After the LED light has been on for say 30 - 45 mins, the power adapter for the lamp is absolutely BURNING hot. Can someone else with a Spec tank (ii, iii, or V) check your adapter (after the light has been on for a while) and see if it's hot to the touch on the sides, and on the backside facing the outlet? I thought LEDs were supposed to use less power, perhaps I should return my tank? If one of the other spec models doesn't have this issue, I will trade it at the store.

Normally, I would overlook something like this but the level of heat is alarming!!! If you have not noticed this, you should check it too. I can't imagine leaving the light on too long, I unplug it after use for fear of burning down the house!

Mine's hot too in my Fluval Spec, dw. Just make sure it faces up and nothing is touching it.
But it's only usually that hot after like 7-8 hours.
