Can a thumb drive USB overheat and wreck itself?

I was just downloading some anime unto a 64 gb thumb drive and it was quite hot to touch.
Never heard of one breaking that way but some of them can get hot enough to burn you. Tends to happen especially with the really tiny nano sized ones.

if the connections are buggered up, could be a short. Its only 5v but could be 2 amps plus.

No... that was a lighter you had stuck in the USB port 😂

That would be a hilarious way to break a thumb drive.

Was it pornographic?
