Check to see if you have NFC enabled as my Nexus 7 2013 has been charging super slow since updating to 5.0.2 lollipop and it got better after I turned off NFC.
Also make sure your running Android 5.1 if your not.
im having the same issue. Mine just recently updated roughly a week ago, and it was slowly becoming an issue with the charging.. Today i woke up my phone wasnt charger and its still on the charger sitting at 7%. New usb cord , tried another charger. everything.  not happy considering i now have to pay to get rid of this phone.

Try what Paul mentioned above, turn off NFC.
Last resort would be to do a factory reset,  make sure phone is backed up 1st.
