How to fix damaged charging port or use battery chargers?

I damaged the charging port on my galaxy so chargers won't fit into it. I need to either replace it or find the right battery and battery charger (to charge the battery externally). Someone told me using the wrong battery charger would damage the battery. I also couldn't find any parts to replace the charging port either.

Any suggestions for either solution would be very helpful as I don't have a phone now, thanks

Thanks for your question.

Sorry for your troubles.

The quickest way to being able to charge your device is to fit it with a wireless charging kit.

Good ones coast around 60 to 80 bucks. And you can completely circumvent repairing the charge port all together. Unless you want to transfer data via the usb cable.

The repair to the charge port shouldn't be a tough repair for any cell repair tech worth his salt. Cost shouldn't gouge you either.

Always replace your battery with an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) battery. So Samsung brand batteries or tell them to shove off.

The cheepest way to keep your phone charged is to get a wall charger for the battery and buy extra batteries. Then you can do battery swapping until you get the charge port repaired.

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
