Step 2: Get Into !
To fix anything it is very obvious first we have to get inside which required a lot of force and even a screw Driver which I highly don't recommend. use any other polite way :P
Step 3: Check If Broken or Poor Solder Joint
After getting into the power bank, first thing I noticed was ports were not actually broken but fallen apart because of poor/bad solder joint.
Your case might be different ! if broken You can order them from link below

Step 4: Disassembly
First disconnect the batteries so if anything goes wrong you will not blow up the circuit ! after which remove the PCB and remove the old Solder left on the Pads
Step 5: Solder !
Place the ports into their respective places and start the soldering process !
If you don't know the soldering process just heat the terminals using solder iron and apply the solder metal and you are done !
Step 6: Assembly
Ones soldering process is done reconnect the batteries and screw back the PCB in to its place. After which check if it works !
And it works !
