I have a 2012 nexus 7, its a beast of a device. But unfortunately the usb port of the device is broken.
Is there any way I can charge the batteries my beloved nexus? I have opened it up, and removed its batteries from the wire that was attached to the socket. I have an external changer as well, I could try attaching the wires which are on the batteries to the external charger, but its a bit risky.
I know i could get the usb port & headphone socket for it and replace it, but it costs 75$, if i am spending that much money on an old nexus i could go n get nexus 7 2013.
So, is there any other way I can charge the batteries of the nexus? Apart from the batteries the device works well, and I hate to see the beast of an nVidia tegra 3 go to waste like that.
