Default Strange charging behaviour

For the last 2 nights, my Nexus 5 has managed to lose power in stead of charging, see screenshot. I have no idea why the battery is draining when it is supposed to be charging. Also the phone is getting quite warm (about 40 degrees or higher).

Please give me a hint how I can solve this.

It could possibly be Kernel related. try flashing Stock kernel and see if the issue still exists

I had the same problem and it was a broken charging cable for me.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

Brings me to the following question: how come that when I use the charging cable that came with the phone, batterystats show Charging AC, and when I use the same cable but with an USB extension cord, the stats show Charging USB? Could that be the faulty cable?

I have no other extension cable at hand now,so... Maybe somebody could try this as well?

Went back to stock kernel and did a factory reset. That solved the problem.

Solved until today. Again, no charging when connected. Bummer. Starting all over again with testing.
