Default Phone slow charge?

I bought my S3 on july and no flaw what so ever, I used to play PPSSPP, I would say its a battery draining app cuz I needed the phone at full power to play, I could play while changing and the battery actually charged, but now. Even by using Mango (which doesn't need much resources) and power saving turned on, plugged in and the phone's charge drops instead of rising. Any idea as to why?

I am having a similar issue.
Have you rooted?
What ROM/Bootloader/Modem are you using?

Im rooted and on 4.3 and I can go from 100% to 30% in a little over 4 hours. The only way I can get my phone to charge now is through a wall charger. Even then its taking forever. Not like it was before when I was on 4.2

my phone only accepts OEM Samsung chargers (cant use any other charge cable or box), and a really good wall plug in order to charge

That happens to me sometimes too but usually it charges normally after a reboot.
