Started experiencing this problem a couple of days ago. Works fine as long as it's plugged into the charger.
4.4.2 installed and running for a while now, and no new apps installed in the last few months except for the usual Facebook updates and such.
As the phone won't completely boot up unless plugged into the charger I don't think this is a software or app problem, most likely the battery has lived it's useful life or there's a bad connection somewhere in the battery circuit.
One interesting note, in normal mode the battery will display a significantly higher charge than when rebooted in safe mode. Also, sometimes when I plug it in after it unexpectedly shuts down the LED will be lit red.
