Default Phone charging issue

I'm using an I phone 5S and it's plugged into the USB port on the side of the Max360 charge adapter. The problem is, even though the phone shows it is charging, the battery indicator on the phone and the percentage of charge stays about the same, even after several hours of run time. I only have one power port to plug the Max360 charge cord into. Other items such as my Garmin work correctly when plugged into this power port. This doesn't happen when my old 9500 IX is used, it charges the phone just fine.

Forgive the question but haven't heard of a charge adapter for the Max 360. Do you mean, perhaps, the USB power port on the SmartCord? If not, will you say more?

If we're talking about the USB power port on the SmartCord, the issue may be due to the aging battery in your iPhone 5s, or you might have too many apps running at the same time on your iPhone. Batteries in smartphones, including iPhones, eventually wear out.

I had to get adouble cigarette adapter (one for my escort 360max and one for my phone) with a higher amp rating because I had the same problem with my iphone 6S and my iphone8+. Escort uses alot of power and their smartcord with the USB is not powerful enough. It was a good thought but it was not well thought out..
