More than likely either the USB Wall port you have has gone bad or there is to much voltage going through the cord to allow it to charge. Just my thoughts thou. if it is a 1 cord with wall plug all in 1 no breakaways then cord may be bad.

============Who gives presents and bites people?================
I used to charge my ps4 controller on a wall charger it but one day i tried to charge it again and it wont charge just on the ps4 console. The wall charger it works because i used it to charge my phone Any ideas on why is not charging anymore on the wall charger
either the chargers fried or the controllers fried. either way, it's because you're charging something with a charger that wasn't designed for it.
you can't just take any old charger that will fit something and expect it to charge flawlessly. chargers and devices all have different power requirements. different watts, amperages, etc. if those numbers don't 100% match up, one, or both of them will be damaged.
was the charger designed for PS controllers, like a charging stand?
After hooking up the VR headset & wands they no longer work outside of using the console.
WTF caused this all of a sudden???
I've tried other outlets etc, nothing but my console now will charge anything. Two wands, two controllers & my headset needing to be charged with only the one usb port available if I don't use me Bluetooth headset.
I believe it's a patch that was DL with the VR bundle.
I hope this gets fixed soon with an update.
Perplexed, aggravated & isolated.
Depending on the charger they can go bad, not at once. Good chargers will output 5.1-5.2v which is good if you have a longer cable or higher resistance cable, as then the charging device will still see about 5V. If the charger starts going bad it may only output 5.0v and then after connections and the cable, the charging 'chip' might only see 4.8V and then it knows not to go into charging mode. Some devices may not be as picky so you would be able to charge your phone, but maybe my phone won't charge on the same charger. The easiest thing to try is a different charger and then a different cable to help identify the cause(or better yet the ps4 port) and verify that it still charges. If the controller still does not charge then likely it needs replaced. Also inspect the usb port and make sure it is clean and not damaged and that the connector fits snug and is not loose or does not wobble around in there, wobbling can cause damage to the contacts.
