Phone not fast charging

I got a refurbished Nexus 6P a few days ago and it won't fast charge. I've tried with many different fast chargers and cables but none of them work. I think I might just replace the USB as there is some visible use on it. Any other suggestions before I go ahead?

Aidan,

If you have tried multiple fast chargers already I would recommend you to go back to the company you purchased the phone from and ask for a replacement. While it may be at the fault of the USB port, you likely have a small warranty from the seller which would cover this issue.

Not entirely sure what you mean by it not fast charging? Is it charging too slow? Yes it could be a USB issue but if the battery dies to fast then it may be a battery issue as well.

It's just how slow it charges. Once it charges it lasts around a day.

But did it always charge slow or just recently? Not all phones charge the same. A faster USB connector could fix it like you explained, other than that, just have to deal with it.

You should also be aware that there are several fast charging standards.

Nexus uses USB Power Delivery while most of the devices today are using the Qualcomm Quick Charge standard.

More about the difference here:

In order to stop wondering which standard you need I recommend you purchasing one of the hybrid chargers which support both. Here is a nice example:
