Phone Slow To Charge: One Receptacle

Separated from

I know this is an old thread but I am wondering if the issue was resolved. I have a fair understanding of electrical but this is beyond me. I also am having this issue. I am using the charger that came with my phone so I know that is not the issue. I can use this charger in any outlet in my home or office and it works perfectly except for one outlet in my living room. The faulty outlet runs my laptop and a living room lamp without issue but charges my phone much slower than any other outlet in the home. Any help on this would be great.

Using a multimeter check the voltage with the charger plugged in.

I suspect a loose connection that shows power but is not intact enough to properly pass power to the charger.
