Given the symptoms tough to do anything else.
Make sure first the cable is not failing.
Unless you know someone else with a similar cable, you'll have to buy one from Amazon, eBay or any local dealers.
As the charger is more or less standard, you can try to charge another device if you have one with USB cable...
If both the cable and the charger are working, then you can determine there is a battery issue...
You may find by yourself a replacement one on eBay if you are willing to change it by yourself, or go to your local repair center...
