Your best chance is to figure out why you phone is bootlooping, fix that problem and access your iphone again.

Anything you can tell me about the history of the phone that might help diagnose the problem ?

Was is dropped recently , waterdamaged or else ?

btw you can try a softreset (no worry no data will be deleted) and hold power and home button together for 12-15 seconds until your device reboots (it does not work many times, but you do not have anything to loose)

It could be the battery that does not take a charge or the charging equiment that someone no longer delivers enough charging power (not likely tho) especially with an almost new phone.

I also do not want you to void your warrenty by opening the phone.

Also there are software that promise to backup your data if you put your device in DFU mode, but I can not advise you to do you, since I have absolutly no experience with that.

I'm more of a harware freak.

Yes you were right it was the battery. I didn't loose a thing however if I would listen to the genius at Apple Store my phone would be wiped from all history and I would loose everything.

I lost over a $100 on a software that was useless from tenorshare which they refuse to give me my money back and new battery replacement was $79 plus tax

Thank you for your suggestion.
