Problems with Battery

I've had my iPhone 5 for over 5 months. Recently, I have a battery problem. It doesn't hold the charge for long. I charge it every night yet in the morning, the battery goes from about 95% down to 65% or less. I make certain to turn-off the apps when not using. Why is the battery losing so much power? Also, when re-charging, the white AC/DC adapter gets very hot as does the phone. Any chance it could explode or is this heat normal? I also have the iPhone 3S and almost no heat is felt when re-charging. I also notice that when connected by cable into my PC, besides synching, it also charges.
Turn off location services when not needed and also put down brightness to the middle.

Heating problem may be due to faulty adapter.
