Does anyone else hear a high-pitched (almost too high pitched to hear) noise coming from the recharger when the DS is plugged in?  If this is abnormal, I'm pretty concerned about it being a defect.  Seeing how Sony's batteries were blowing up, I'm a little concerned about something which could be plugged in while I'm not at home.

I have replaced 2 DS units - thankfully purchased from Costco!

One had the high-pitched charger, and eventually it will "Poof" on you.

The other one had a battery that popped and fried the unit.

Both were a quick trip up to replace them, and I ended up getting black units instead by choice.   thumbsup

I have never had this problem, though I rarely play while it's charging.  The times I have it didn't make any noise at all.

I've had this issue since day 1 with my Lite.  Very weird.  I posted a comment about it in some other thread... but yeah, right when it starts charging I can barely hear a really high pitched sound for a bit.  This was bad when I had my bed situation where the pitch was going right next to my head.  Now that I charge my DS in another corner of the room, it's fine (in the fact that I can't hear it - it stills does the pitch thing).

So yep, I know exactly what you're talking about.  I haven't thought about replacing it or anything... though I do have a massive hinge crack and I could replace it if I really wanted to...

No, this is absolutely not normal.
Trust me, I have dog ears...I'm very sensitive to high pitches.
I've never heard a GBA/Micro/DS/Lite charger make any noise.

I can pick up noises like this as well, and I've heard nothing like this before out of my DS Lite.

Definitely not a good thing, IMHO.

My DS charger also makes the very high pitched, almost inaudible sound.  But, so does my laptop charger, so I thought it was normal among rechargers.  Guess not.
