    You could. I dont think you have to remove the tape, there are two screws that hold the copper strip to the phone near the bottom. I beleive that's where the wires must be attached to.

    Ask kenji again if the programming cable can be used to charge the phone, I believe it can.

    I've never used the factory/programming cable to charge the phone so I can't really comment on that.

    However, I wouldn't take the battery out at all - it's glued pretty heavily to the phone. You can peel the sticker on top of it back a little on one corner to reach the screws that hold the battery down.

    The part you want to peel back is the bottom right side of the sticker. Look at the teardown pictures and you'll see it in step 6.

    You can use a small flat blade screwdriver on them but you don't have to take them out just carefully put the wires on each terminal with something to hold them down. Then plug in the charger. Assuming you don't mind scrapping a usb cable.

    You can always just tape the wires to the top of the screws.

    Either way, the screw is the conductor. Just try to get as much of the wires on it as possible and maybe leave it on for a little longer - like around an hour and a half. Better to undercharge and have to do it again than to fry the battery. :)
