    Welcome to iMore! Have you tried using a different charger?
    Keep in mind, Apple's iPhone batteries are designed to retain 80% of their original capacity for 500 full charge cycles. After that you're on borrowed time. It's possible your battery is simply past its useful life. If that's the case you can replace the phone or replace the battery.

    My old iPhone 5 sometimes drains down where it takes over an hour just to start showing and start charging. The 5 is an old phone now. The batteries don't last forever. Yours is probably gone or about gone. You're going to need a new battery or new phone.

    That is if your phones actually affected by this. In which case if you do think it is then type the serial number then and find out if not then youll have to buy a new one.
