I've used 3 AA batteries in series to "boost" the system back to life. First
remove the original battery and then attach the positive and negative leads.
With the usb plugged in boot the phone shortly after the kernel has booted
you can remove the battery and the system will keep booting ( If it doesn't
the USB is only supplying 100mA ).nOnce booted put the Lion battery back in
and it should charge.

Don't leave the batteries connected for very long as the system will
eventually try to charge them and that could toast the charging circuit.
