Pixel Inconsistently Charging

I've been having a problem intermittently with my Pixel over the past week and a half to two weeks. When I plug it into a charger (I have several, all of which worked just fine previously), the phone acknowledges that it has been plugged in and the battery icon changes to show that it is charging. However, about half of the time, the phone's battery drains instead of charges, even though the battery icon remains in "charging" display.

I've visually inspected the charging port on the phone itself (since the likelihood of all 5 of my chargers going bad around the same time is low), and i don't see any damaged connectors. Is anyone else having this problem? Any advice?

I've had the opposite issue where my phone wont show its charging unless I go into the battery settings and check the status manually.
