Actually, I just had this exact same issue, and it WAS just compacted dust and pocket lint in the back of the lightning port of my iPhone 5 that was making the connector loose (and I mean so loose that I could barely get it to charge). I used a soft toothpick and dug out more crap than one would think could be hiding in there, and now my lightning cable is totally snug again and charges flawlessly.

I had this problem as well, and it was also caused by lint.

I really didn't think that this was the problem, but it was. I used a flat wooden toothpick to carefully scrape it out. I'll post a picture of the lint so you'll get an idea of how much was actually in there.

I had a bunch of lint inside my lightning receptacle, as well. Blowing it with compressed ďairĒ alone didnít do the trick. I used a 2-mm flat-blade screw driver to carefully loosen the lint and then blew it out.
