iPhone IMMEDIATELY dies unless Charging


I'm new to this site, so hopefully I've posted in the right section aha.

TL;DR - My iPhone will literally die unless there's charge going to the iPhone. Once the charger's disconnected from the iPhone, the phone will die.

Once I'm charging the iPhone, it will begin to show the boot logo but in a loop over and over (till about 5-10 minutes have passed) then I can access the phone.

The charging icon at the top-right will ALWAYS show '1%' and shows it's charging. Rarely, I've seen it go up to '2%' but that's as far as it goes. Leaving it on overnight to charge or leaving it to charge for an hour won't do anything.

I want to fix it but I don't know what's actually the problem. People are giving me different opinions such as the "battery may be on it's last legs" or "the connector to the charging port may have come undone..".

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you! :)

@joka you got to start somewhere and I'd recommend you go with a new battery. Apple did not do a battery recall on the 6S for no reason, and the same problems apparently also exist for the iPhone 6 and 6plus. So start with a new battery, then re-evaluate.
