How do I charge a broken PowerBook G4 with a dead battery (because of bent outer casing)?

All I want to do is get my pictures and documents off this computer and then sell it for parts, but the battery is dead (the casing is bent and the charger doesn't connect). Apple store says $400 to fix casing so I can just charge it up again, which I don't want to do.
Ideas on how to charge the battery for this bad boy as cheaply as possible?
I don't know anyone who has the same model so I could steal their battery, either.
