Try using a different outlet. If that doesn't work, see the following from the Nintendo 3DS support page:

 

  • Check for damage to the AC adapter or charging cradle (including dirty or damaged connectors/contacts).
    • If either accessory is damaged, a licensed replacement may resolve the issue. To start the order process, click here

 

  • If the system still doesn't charge, the system, cradle, and AC adapter may need to be repaired. To start the repair process, click here.

I think I figured it out. If you play it until it loses all battery (it shuts off) it takes awhile for it to gain that small charge back.

 

You can also try using a different AC adapter if changing outlets doesn't help and if the above quote isn't quite the solution.
