Question about Apple iPhone Smartphone
It's starting to sound like the phone may very well be bricked. Holding down the power button and home button was the first thing that came to mind, so it's too bad that didn't work.
Not all hope is lost, though. You can try and see if somehow you can get the phone in DFU mode, even though it is unresponsive. Follow the directions here. They even have a video to help, which is really helpful, as timing is key with DFU. The only thing you'll be doing is acting as though the iPhone is currently on like in the video, even though yours is not.
If that doesn't work, unfortunately, you may need to make a claim with the extended battery manufacturer and try talking to Apple. The battery company has it in their best interest to fix your situation in an effort to keep you, their customer, happy. Hopefully they see it that way!
