    no key recharging I am afraid, only two 1620 button batteries to power it.

    never noticed my key getting warm to be honest, like look out for it next time

    sounds dodgy. I would hae wondered if a bad contact to the battery inside was sparking, but I would have thought the voltage would be to low to heat it up too much.Could try having a look to see.

    I think mine used to get quite warm on a long journey, and I think the salesman said something to me like "it charges itself while in the ignition".
    Can't say I've noticed it for a long time though.
