A laptop charger, a thick, bricklike adaptor you attach to a electrical socket and connect to your computer, is what you use to ensure your laptop battery is charged. It is perfectly natural for it to become a little warm as it charges your computer's battery. However, if it appears to be overheating, you may wish to take some precautions that will cool the charger down.

Move the adaptor away from direct sunlight. The adaptor will become warm just because of the current passing through it; putting the adaptor in the path of sunlight will only serve to exacerbate the problem.
Place the adaptor in the path of an ample airflow. Unlike your laptop, your charger has no fan mechanism to cool it down as it works, so create an artificial cooling process by placing the adaptor in an area that gets a supply of cold air, such as near an open window.
Spare the laptop charger whenever possible. If you use the laptop charger for the whole time you are on your laptop, it could get very hot. Try to use the charger only when your battery is low on life. If your laptop has enough battery life to be self-sufficient, do not use the charger.
