How to remove lightning connector that broke off in lightning port

Hi,

The lightning connector from the cable broke off and is now stuck in the lightning port on my trackpad 2 so of course i can't insert a new lightning cable to charge this anymore.

Other than taking this apart, does anyone have ideas on how i can remove the broken off lightning tip?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There's not a lot of wiggle room and the way it broke off (flat) there isn't really anything to grab onto. i was considering using a tiny left hand drill bit but am concerned i may cause damage.

I would use a hemostat or small needle nose pliers to grab it and pull it out.

If you take it in to an Apple store and ask nicely, they may have tools that will get it out.
