What do I replace once I have it apart? Where's the charging port? How do I get another charging port that works?

Ggs - Réponse

The charging port and the aux input are mounted to a circuit board enclosed within a small compartment on the back panel. We didn’t open the compartment in this guide because it requires breaking the seal of the compartment’s gasket, which would be unreasonable to replace. We figured it would be easier to replace the whole back panel instead. My advice for finding a new charging port would be to scour eBay or a similar site for a broken Mini Lifejacket and use its entire back panel as the replacement.
