What iPhone is it? If it's a 4 it will most likely be free! If it's a 3GS and have purchased it in the past year, it's also free!

When did you buy it? And it sounds like a restore will do the trick, as it's software and not hardware as the sounds of it.

Yes that's true, but it might not be that price. Have you tried restoring? That's a question they will ask you.

Couldn't you wait till you get back? Restore it, then see if that works. If not, you got to back-up your data anyways before you go in.

Well for that you need to first ensure if any such scheme really exists and secondly, you need to know if you fit in those circumstances or terms of conditions that we call from which you can really benefit yourself.

Had a similar issue with iPhone 4. I restored as new and the battery is back to normal. At the store they can do a diagnosis which could tell you if there is actually an issue with the battery. I believe it was $80 for a new battery.

Have you tried another charging cord/adaptor?

I bought an aftermarket adaptor on eBay ($0.99 including shipping; what did I expect?!) and it gave the same result you describe. Going back to the OEM unit worked fine. Maybe yours went bad...
