It sounds like you might've inadvertently solved this yourself. If I read this correctly. Your iPhone wasn't you swapped in a logic board from another phone and everything worked ok right? Which automatically rules out connectors and battery...and leaves two options:

1: Blown charging fuse on the logic board.

2: Fried charging circuitry on the logic board.

Check out OldTurkey's answer No Power, No Charging, No iTunes. You can check/try replacing the fuse first...much cheaper than a new logic board! If that doesn't work, it unfortunately sounds like the logic board may be toast.
