Dead battery

I have completely drained my battery to the point where the Freerunner
will not boot and hence I cannot charge it.

I was using the latest Qtopia image so assume I have the newest kernel images as well, but I
still have no idea how to get my phone booting again in the absence of an external charger
or a second battery. Ideas anyone?
