Unit stops charging when powered

I have a macbook air that all of a sudden stopped charging, but still powers up fine with the charger.

The mag safe light does lights up amber, but it does not turn green and the charge indicator on the macbook shows that its charging, but the charge does not increase. This sounds like a logicboard problem, but could it be the battery?

Update (05/17/2019)

Here is a screenshot of the coconut battery tool for the poster who asked me for a exported report of the tool. I was not able to extract the data from the tool itself.

UPDATE

That battery shows to be poor condition with 1,022 cycles. It will only hold 1/3 of its original capacity. Time to replace it.

Here’s how to change it out:

I did a Mac Data CSV Export but its just showing the field headers and not the actual data. Do I need to select something first? Please see the image I could only attach my original post.

Maybe the power consumption is equal to the power being delivered by the charger? Try emptying the battery, charging with the laptop off, than seeing if the charge has increased.

That seemed to do it.. Why is it not charging the battery to full?

Miscalibrated? Or maybe just a weirdly made battery... I'm not sure.
