People keep saying that their chargers are not working. I noticed via AccuBattery that once my phone exceeds 100-104 F, that the phone stops charging until the phone cools down. I don't think this is a power brick/cable issue, I think this is a thermal management issue.

It's done to try and protect the battery from unnecessary stress and possible damage.

Optimum Li charging temp range is 82-99F
A start temp of 85F is better.
Never attempt to charge below 40F
Avoid starting charge below 72F
Fast charging will likely not engage if temperature is too low (around 71-50F or less).
Charging will disengage if the battery gets too hot about >103F.
Fast charging may disengage at 100F and will start ramping down around 80% and ramp down even more as it approaches 100%
