Noticed yesterday that battery was charging really slow an was actually loosing percentage while on the charger .. so it finally died .. I plugged it in while it was off an I did get the battery icon with the animated dots indicating it was charging .. I powered up left it on the charger for about 5 hrs while I slept .. woke up an was only at 50% .. Not sure if theirs a fix .. on latest update nc5d an k3 version 2

I had that problem, was the charging cord. The off brand USB 3.0 charger I bought off of Amazon stopped charging my phone.

Since the battery completely died, you could try getting a new battery, but sometimes it just needs to be dusted off as well.

Try taking out the battery and cleaning the area it charges with a cloth, I do that once in a blue moon, lol.

Does the battery spin? Put the battery on a hard flat surface. Spin it on both sides. If it spins freely then the cells could be bulging and the battery is on its way out. If that's the case replace it immediately. These types of batteries are dangerous when they start bulging and could start a fire. It might be a cable but it wouldn't hurt to check the battery too.

It could very well be your kernel. I've had that happen before. Actually lost charge while on charger. Wipe your caches in recovery reinstall kernel and cross fingers
