i have come across this problem and thought it was water damage although the water markers tell a different story. I tested the battery in another phone and low and behold it charged. Once charged enough to power on i put it into the faulty phone and it continued to charge. there's a few options

1. don't ever let your phone completely drain of power (not easy)

2. get it fixed as per above link

3. buy a battery bank/charge case and again don't ever let your phone drain completely

4. take a chance with taking it back to apple for a replacement (not easy either)

Apparently fault is due to using non-apple chargers or car chargers which charge at different voltages that the iPhone isn't designed for which in turn damages the U2 ic chip.
