Uhh..well..hard to say. You'll have to take the phone apart. It is possible you could relate the lightning dock and maybe the battery. It's possible it could be revived

There are of course no guarantees, after what you've done. So take a look at the board, and see how badly it's been burned. Maybe it hasn't even been burned at all?

Your charging block may be damaged.

This happens to non OEM. Cords/blocks.

In sum cases I found the power block voltage spiked and sent to much power to the phone and it burned the ribbon cord that connects the power port to the main board.

My iPhone 5s recently just did that. And the really nothing apple will do. You would've thought as good as they strive to be, they'd be helpful.
