Default 12V to 5V iphone car charger for enclosure getting hot

just as the title states I bought a 12V to 5V iphone car charger and took it apart for my enclosure. It powers on and charges my phone just fine, however the usb male end is getting hot. I read somewhere about adding a heat sink to remedy this. Has anyone done this and if so, how would I go about doing that.

Thanks in advance!

I am using a CLASS D amplifier. Sorry to have offended you. What would be the proper forum?
