Use an original fast charger
After loosing the charger to your iOS device either it got damaged or you simply misplaced it and there is a need to replace it. Getting an original fast charger is of great importance.

So if you need replacement for your charger, make sure you get the one that tally with the ampere range for your device.
Try out different USB cable

Try getting short cables from your Friends and test them with your device using your own charger adapter. You should also check the cable port to see if there is no rupture in the port or dirt.
Reduce Device activity
Try switching off your device while charging
If purchasing a new charger and changing the USB data cable did not solve the problem, how about you switch off your device, this is to check if there are some apps on your device causing this problem. Some apps can actually cause fast battery draining when they run in background even when they are not in use which can also cause slow charging on battery. So switching off the phone while it charges stops the app from running and the phone can then fast charges on its own.
Uninstall idle apps
Most apps are always running in background even when not in use or minimised, if you have unnecessary apps on your device, apps you no longer use. Why keep them?
