Is it normal for the button LED lights get very hot to the touch while using a 14.8V lithium battery?
2-Piece Super Bright LED Button Light Kit
Aluminum housings are getting very hot to the touch while I was testing my layout. Concerned that it would damage the rotomolded plastic on a Hobie PA due to the heat generated and elongate the holes. I'm using a Amped Outdoors 19Ah 14.8V battery. All four button lights appear to be the same temp. I measured around 120-130 DegF. Is this normal or should I be concerned? Thanks!

Low grade polyethylene doesn't start to melt until 220 degrees, you should be fine. Some of our team guys use such batteries with no problems.
