@fatedengram this can be an issue with the charger, the charging port and/or the battery. Use a multimeter and check your charger to make sure that it has the proper voltage output (5V). If that is okay check the power port and change the battery while you are at it. Use these guides PlayStation Vita Repair to work on it.

@fatedengram "the battery im getting 2.82" start with a new battery. Not sure where you tested for the voltage on your port but either one is to low.

Try opening it and unplug battery and plug back in then charge it. Sometimes that can fix. If slim model the android style charging cables are junk and often go bad. So it maybe your charger.
