Lidia Ascencio, not quite sure what you mean by bypassing. You will need some port in order to charge the battery. I would suggest a charging cable, cut the micro USB end off and solder the wires to the contacts on the port. Of course, if you can find a replacement port, unsolder the old one and replace with a new one. Using this guide you can actual get to the connector.

Open the unit and solder pin 1 to negative and pin 5 with positive to a cable or jack... supply it with 5v 1a or 6v 3a max

I can’t do the microsurgery to replace the actual connector but I found a spot to wire the ground and + wires from a USB cable. Apologies for my terrible soldering my eyesight is even worse then my Radio Shack soldering iron.. There are many places you can ground the connection. I just went for the easy target and soldered the green lead from my cable to the outside shield of the micro USB connector. You could probably also solder to the negative battery input. For the + terminal whuch for my cable is a pink wire I found a small through hole in the circuit board. I shoved a small wire into it and soldered my + lead. I then tested everything and used hot glue to make sure the wires didn’t move and compromise my terrible soldering job.
