    Toggle the Mute switch a couple of times before holding the Power and Home button for 10-20 sec. It's known to have worked for some.

    lithium ion batteries that have been deep discharged die.

    enter your serial # at https://www.apple.com/support/iphone5-battery/
    maybe your iPhone was on the list of bad batteries

    the imei should be on the back. you can also look up your serial # by going to
    http://supportprofile.apple.com and looking up your apple IDs. that website has the devices you have registered

    otherwise it will probably cost $79 to replace the battery at the apple store.

    try a different charger. iPhone needs 1000ma to charge. which is not considered USB standard.

    try charging it on a mac, they will provide the power that the iPhone needs.

    try borrowing someone's iPad charger. that might work

    you can also use about this mac, system report, to check the usb port to see if the iPhone is connecting. ( to charge )
