Oh I don't know....Maybe the fact you are using the wrong charger? Lol no but seriously.
The S5 has a 2800mAh battery that is configured to charge off a 2.0A brick. Using anything but can result in this type of behavior.
First off you totally cut charging time in half but using a 1.0A charger. Second, there could of been apps using battery all night. I'd stick to the charger the phone came with.
*EDIT* Other then that all I can think of is it fell out of the phone/wall overnight. Unless you got kids. I've woken up plenty of times to see my kids trying to guess my unlock code.
