USB sockets

Had a single socket changed over to one with a couple of usbs on it too when I had some work done a few weeks back.

I've noticed though that the usbs get warm when some devices are plugged into them (like a phone that has fast charge capability for example) .

They say they can do a 2.4 amp output, and I know some chargers are more than this, but should I be worried about the heat?

They don't get red hot , but do get warm, and it's not the whole socket- just where the USBs are.
