Default Nexus 5 won't take charge

Hi everyone

My nexus 5 won't charge. That is, it says it's charging, but sits at 0% and won't budge. I've tried 4 different USB cables with the stock charger and the Nexus 7 2012 charger.

I'm running stock 4.3.3 with towel root and SuperSU from the play store. I was using the phone normally today when all of a sudden it switched off. It didn't say "powering off", it just went black. I probably had about 12% battery left at this point.
I plugged it into the stock charger and USB cable and the notification light started flashing red. I left it like that for about 5 minutes, booted into the bootloader and reset the phone, after which it seemed to be charging. However the percentage just dropped from 12% to 0% in about half an hour - despite being "charging" and the phone being left alone apart for some minor WhatsApp-ing.

Anyone experience anything similar or have a solution?

Thanks!

Switch off the device completely and put it on a wall charger for an hour or so and then boot it up and see if it has charged or not?
