Trem626, I'd focus first on something simple like the charging cord itself. Make sure the port hole of the phone is clear of any dust or lint and clean off the cable plug that inserts into the phone.
Trem626 - Having a device that you can keep charged is a must. Any water/physical damage to the device or charger? Are you using the original charger? Salisbury has provided some great tips.
