Default Battery getting hot and slow charging

It's been about a week now that my XTZ on 4.3 is experiencing slow charging and gets very hot in the back close to the mini usb charging port.
Im using the stock charger which works perfectly with my Xperia ZL phone.
When I use my tablet and its plugged to the chafer I get a message saying that the tablet isn't charging fast enough to please connect to another charging method (or something like that)

If I power it off it gets stuck and frozen on with Powering off message for about 30 seconds before it shuts off. Powering it back on, makes it work fine for a while, then same problem.
Anyone experienced this before?

Yeah with stock charger it's slow if you have another charger you can try I have a Samsung USB plug it charges quicker
And the slow shutdown it's a normal 4.3 bug

How slow it charges? Disable DayDream, if you have it enabled. The screen on consumes too much battery, making it charge REALLY slow...
