Is it possible to access data from iPad without a battery in it?

Basically, I thought the iPad that I was experimenting on was useless. now apparently I forgot to get the data off the device, while I was experimenting with the device I

  1. Damaged the connection from the battery to the motherboard. It’s probably likely that this is unrepairable
  2. I peeled up the connection between the charging port ribbon and the motherboard, I’m not entirely sure if I can get this fixed. But there are places nearby me that can do microsoldering, and I know where I can get parts for the charging ribbon cable itself.

Are any of these repairable and does the device have any hope? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks in advance

Answer this question I have this problem too

Somehow or another you need to get power to your iPad's logic board and you will also need a means to retrieve the data via USB or WiFi.

Power and ground pads are easy to fix, they are literally all over the board.

Battery controller pads are more difficult and if you don’t connect them to a real battery, the device restarts every minute.

You likely broke the pads when peeling off charging port ribbon cable from logic board, which I don’t believe is repairable.

How did you damage the connection between battery and motherboard? If board is still intact, try a new battery and see if it can power on.
