Troubles with charger

A couple of months ago I bought a Chinese Android tablet Cube U35GT2 , which is quite nice although it has its downsides. One of them is the charger included in the bundle. It is a typical Chinese charger rated 5V/2A and it gets very hot when I use the tablet while charging. Eventually it burned out and I got to repair it - the output filter capacitor was blown up and I replaced it and also replaced the catch diode with a higher rated one.
