    My Nexus 5 charger (one that came in with the phone) isn't charging my phone any more - AC and USB. In fact, when connected, my phone either discharges or takes upto 15 hours to charge from 10% to 100%. This is very strange because I know that this particular charger (1.2A) used to charge my phone faster than any charger I've used before.

    After trying different chargers that I could find in my house, I found one that came with my old S4 (2.0A). Currently, this is the only charger that can charge my phone.

    1. Is there something wrong with my phone or its battery that it's behaving so erratically?
    2. Will using a higher amperage charger destroy my phone in the long run?

    Please help.

    It may be that your USB port is faulty, or dirty, and that by chance, the USB lead on the charger that works, is just so slightly physically different that it cancels the fault or any dirt effect.
    Charging at a higher amperage is not harmful because the phone will draw the amperage that it needs, and no more.
