Here's what worked for me.
Carefully remove the back cover using a flat bladed screw driver. The battery can be spotted easily as it is centered and takes about two-thirds of the area. Do not remove the battery. Rather, you will see a point where the battery wires are connected to the circuit board around the bottom right of the A1 (assuming you put the A1 in an upside position, the camera lens being at the top). Try to loosen the plug by pulling the connector backwards using a small flat-bladed screw driver or even with your nails. Do not try to pull it back all the way, just enough to stop current flow. Make sure the battery is now disconnected by trying to turn the A1 on. Then, connect the A1 to a charger (I used a USB cable to draw power from my laptop). Now, reconnect the battery by plugging the connector back in. Now press and hold the power button until the screen turns on. The battery should be charging now.
