We've had a string of 100F+ days here (about 38C), and I've been reading outside on my KOA2 each day with no ill effects. Granted, I don't sit in direct sunlight at that temperature (ouch!), but no overheating problems as yet. I seem to remember the specs saying the maximum operating temperature is 95F, so I'm clearly testing the limits...
We have been so humid here in New England this summer, that condensation is a concern just being outside. Lol. I'm glad it's waterproof too. Even putting the device down on a wet surface. It has not gotten to the extreme hot temp. warning yet, but like you I'm not reading in direct sun very long.

metal is a very good heat conductor. even if it's just 75 degrees outside (and be informed that weather reports report the temperature in the shade, not in full sun), if the reader is under the full sun, it will accumulate heat and not be able to disperse it if there is no breeze. so it's best to not have the reader in the full sun for too long.

It is metal so it will get hot faster than plastic. My tablets get hot in the sun too
