Is it possible to repair or repurpose a power bank charger where the mini connector to charge it has become dislodged?

I have an EYON power bank. A year after I got it, the mini connector broke off inside so I could not recharge it. I would like to either repair it or find a way to repurpose it to recharge it and then power/charge things but I don't know enough about how to safely open it without destroying it.

Chances are some small plastic tab has broken off and the whole plug/circuit board can be glued back into place, but the only way to find out whats going on inside is to open it up.

Some googling found this, but it gives you a good idea of what you're up against.

maybe. You might be able to repair it. Often these types of things are glued together inside so it might just be a case of opening it up and gluing it back into place. If the wires are broken or if it was soldered to a small board then it might be a bigger problem.

Looks like the top is pressed into place so it could just pull off. There is a web site that shows how stuff like this is put together but I don't recall the name right off. Look for it with a Google search.
