My iPhone 4s stopped charging two days ago while staying at someone's beach condo. The battery began charging slowly and then just quit charging. The phone won't charge with my charger now. The screen is black. If I push the on/off button for a few seconds, it shows a plug and a battery with a little bit of red, and it flashes the red twice. Then the screen turns black again. I'm wondering if I need a new charger or a new battery. My HP laptop also stopped charging while at the condo - It will only charge up to 5% with my laptop charger. I have never had this problem before so I'm thinking there was some kind of electrical surge from the outlets during the storm that occurred while staying in the condo. I wasn't using surge protectors. My phone was backed up until the day we went on vacation, but I really want the vacation pictures off of the phone. Do you think it's the charger or the battery? What's the best way to get a battery at a decent cost if the battery is the problem? Thanks!
