Hey I don't know if anyone has already posted something like this, but for the past 4 days I've notices that the the charger block gets really hot while connected to my iPhone 4. If anyone has an answer please let me know.

While I have not had this happen with my iPhone 4 yet, I read on Apples website, that charging your iPhone while in "certain" cases could generate excess heat, which can affect the batteries capacity. If you are using your case while charging your iPhone, take it out of the case the next time you charge it, and see if that helps.....

No but it is not my phone that gets hot, it's the charger it's self.

Yeh. My charger gets quite warm too. Same with my wife's phone charger - Nokia. I wouldn't worry.

Don't worry about it. You should start worrying when the charger gets REALLY hot and/or starts emitting a burning smell. It is normal for chargers to emit a little heat.

When I sleep and charge my phone, I'm always worried about it setting on fire, like that guy that posted a melted charger cable and his charger slot (iPhone 4) burnt. I'd be angry if that happened to me, but I only have bumper so excess heat can't be as bad as the back plate being covered up as well.

Hi guys, does anyone know if it is at all possible to design an electronic device so that it can be recharged through either the standard iPhone USB charging cable or even an iPhone docking station? Thanks!

Well, of course it's possible. Apple already did it with their army of iPod, iPad, and iPhone devices, as they all use the same cable to charge from.
That changed a little with the new generation of iPod touch, nano, and iPhone, but this new generation still shares the same lightning cable.

OK, but all of these devices are owned and designed by Apple themselves. I am trying to find out if another company can design a device to be chargeable using these Apple chargers....? Thanks!

That would mean that they have "licensed" the lightning adapter specs and designs to work with for a non-Apple device. It's not very likely.
Honestly, a lightning cable with lightning connectors at either end would be a great way to replace USB, but again, it has to be adopted as an industry standard, and that requires Apple losing its patent and rights to it so that it will become "open source" or shared tech. That will not happen.
