Non responsive. Dead battery?

I have an iPad 3 that was missing the digitizer and the LCD was trashed when I got it. Tried charging it and connecting to iTunes but it seems non responsive. No sounds and not recognized by iTunes. It has no home button and the dock connector looks ok though the housing is bent around it. No signs of obvious damage to logic board or batteries.

My question is:

Is it possible that the battery is too dead to take a charge? It's likely been sitting in a drawer like this for months.

Is there a way I can test the dock connector to make sure a charge is passing through to the battery?

Also is there a way to test the logic board to make sure it's still alive.

I've only paid $20 for it but want to make sure it's worthwhile buying a new battery, LCD, and front panel for it.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

So if the battery is dead and wont take a charge , does that mean the iPad won't power on at all when plugged in?

If iTunes is unable to read the iPad then you have some major damage to the logic board. Not worth the investment of buying parts.

Can Itunes still read it with a dead battery? I metered the battery and it was only measuring 0.7 volts. Which from what I can tell means its shot and cant be recharged.
