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.

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?

as long as the voltage is the same and the amperage is equal or greater than you are ok. I use phone chargers for my ds4 and gold headset and my cable box for my ds3s.

try a different cord just to be sure. The ds4 is 5V 800mA. I use two chargers...

LG 5V 1200 mA and LG 5V 850mA. other than swapping cords I dont know what to suggest.

I have this same issue yesterday.. I used to always charge my controller using a universal usb charger (with PS4 usb cable), as well as my iphone charger. But it won't work now for some reason. Did OP ever find a solution to this? Please share. Chargers work fine in case you were wondering. Plus the cable also works fine since I can charge via the PS4.

Thanks
