I've plugged it into a lighting USB port and it zapped it

So stupidly I thought I'd charge my phone on the kitchen lighting driver hub. It now doesn't work at all. I've tried booting with volume and power buttons and also factory reset button combinations…nothing. It won't charge at all. It's dead. I've tried replacing the battery, still nothing. What is likely to be wrong? Is it repairable?

Is this a good question?

It’s hard to say if it’s repairable but by the sounds of it you may have board level damage. You might want to reach out to iPad Rehab, STS Telecom, or Rossman Repair Group to see if they can fix it.
