Help please!
As you are saying that your mobile seems "hot"

First you need to confirm that its charger/device issue or only with battery.

First do battery calibration with this method: (In this method you need custom recovery for your device

This may help you

Dont forget to thank him there on his thread.

IMPORTANT: You can skip this step>> "Wait 20 min after you are sure it is 100% (phone should stay plugged in)" - As i dont know much about LG devices and their batteries

Now some advice from me-
If you can cover it >>> Never charge battery again and again before 15 or 20%
Always charge your battery to 100% at once and use your device till 15% or less than 15% and then again charge it full and so on...
This will make your battery backup good as well for battery life

My Device" Samsung Galaxy S Duos GT-S7562

If you are on a custom ROM, try wiping cache and dalvik and battery stats...could help.

According to the Battery Doctor app, you shouldn't leave your phone on charge for more than 9-10 hours(MAX), otherwise it WILL harm your battery.

Default BetterBatteryStats

Use better battery stat (check play store) or similar app to track draining application.
In this way you can find a culprit
