    My phone charger has started going "off, on, off, back on" as if I'm plugging and unplugging it. This is the second charger I've bought in two weeks which makes me think it's the phone and not the charger. Is this possible?

    Yes, just buy a new battery, very inexpensive, look on Amazon.

    It could be the charging port on your phone going bad or coming loose. It could also be an improperly sized microusb plug on your cable.

    Is your cable a Samsung cable? Or even a well respected brand?

    If it's not, that might be the issue. I have several "generic" cables that I've accumulated over the years that don't have a tight, snug grip when I plug then into my phone. They wiggle a bit and will randomly connect/disconnect from my phone which sends my phone charging indicator into a fit.

    If your cable is good, then it could either be the charging port or the battery. I'd recommend trying a new battery as you can get a good Anker replacement on amazon for like $15.

    If the issue persists, you know it's not the battery.
