My iPod Touch 5g Battery would drop while charging

Time:November 30
Advertisement
My iPod Touch 5g 32GB's Battery (which I got last year, March 2014) would drop lately whenever I attempt to charge. I have been observing it closely for two days: It would be charging, it would be connected - but the battery percentage would be dropping (i.e. at one point it will be 95% in a few more minutes it would drop to 93%)
These are the things to take in consideration:
I use the Battery Doctor app
The battery drop would often occur when the cable somewhat disconnects and reconnects
iTunes would reveal a message that the "iPhone couldn't be recognized"
I would "soft-reset" the device (pressing down the power and home button till it shuts down and powers up again with the Apple logo) and I would notice that the Battery Doctor app's charging indicator would have a significant change: Let's say, when I shut the device down it was at 90%, when I open it up again it would be at 95%, In two cases (yesterday and today), the charging would go smoothly till it hits 100% after the "soft-reset".
I couldn't tell if the iPod Touch's battery has the problem or its just the cable.
Hoping anyone could give me suggestions.
Thanks!
