    Grab a multimeter and test the unloaded output of that charger. If it's more than 7 volts, I wouldn't use it any more. Shop for a charger that advertises 'switch-mode' or 'regulated'..it's more likely to be about 5-6 volts unloaded, and the proper 5 volts when loaded.

    to put it in context, the ambient temperature is typically about 90F, and my car's air conditioning was a bit spotty..

    Yeah I've had a high temp (I think like 104*) once before too when I had the wifi on by accident, screen at 100%, and google navigation going.

    Just make sure that the charger isn't measuring over 7 volts unloaded, it will have no where to shunt the excess power besides the battery and circuitry which causes heat that might harm the phone.

    Oh, forgot to mention that the phone got so hot, the touch screen became totally unresponsive. All was well after some cooling down.
