I'm going to think this has something to do with one of the chargers -- after 2 years this isn't covered under warranty anymore, I'd imagine either overvoltage or similar has impacted the usability of the battery that is in the device. A quick(ish) fix would be to engage a local iPhone repair shop with the device, if you get the right kind of shop you'll be able to walk the device in and work with the tech while he's working on it -- if you describe the behavior it should be easy enough for someone with the tools to break it open, unhook the current battery, and test a replacement -- that way you know if it's going to fix it.
Alternately you can just have Apple do an out of warranty repair for the $100 or $200 it will cost, but I think you'd be better served stopping by a local shop if one exists. In either case, I'm pretty certain this is a hardware issue and if you don't want to worry about your phone catching fire in your pocket, the best bet would be to get that battery replaced.
That said, it could be problems elsewhere -- the charging circuit could have blown, etc. I've seen all sorts of things with knock-off chargers and cabling, so your mileage may vary.
