While this has already been said many times, it should be iterated that you should only be using the official charger and not any third-party charger. In that regard, you should be using the official USB cable and the 30W charging brick that Google provides.

Method 5: Charge the device at room temperature

Pixel devices usually get hotter if they have been left plugged into the charger overnight. When the battery temperature crosses the 40-degree mark, the device charges only at 3.5W. In such cases, you should look to cool down your device by putting it in front of an air conditioner vent. Once the device temperature has been lowered to 25 degrees, it starts charging at its full capacity.
