    Make sure the charging port on your iPhone 5 is clear from any debris like pocket lint or dirt. You can try cleaning the port with a small vacuum or a can of compressed air. If you use compressed air, be careful to hold the can about 6 inches away and only use short blasts.

    Then if the cable and port are OK as you say, it might be time to take the phone to have it checked out and repaired if necessary. I personally wouldn't spend a lot of money to have an iPhone 5 repaired when you can get an unlocked 5 for around $150.00.
