I just wanted to relay my experience in case others run in to this same issue.
I've had my Galaxy Nexus since December, and I love it, mostly (mostly hardware design complaints, and now I'm adding another). I've had intermittent charging issues before, where it would be plugged in and wouldn't charge, but I'd unplug it and plug it back in and it would work fine. It was weird and annoying, but I dealt with it. Today, I plugged my phone in, took a nap, came back and I was down to 8% from 35% when I first plugged it in, even though my phone recognized that it was plugged in and it even said "Charging". I unplugged, replugged, no luck... pulled battery and retried, nothing. Tried other chargers, other cables, all to no avail. Then my phone died, obviously, because I had no power. I found this post, and it fixed it:

Take my rant for what it's worth, but if you run in to the issue I had where your phone won't charge even though it thinks it's charging, try what Annalisa2 said.
