External battery charger?

Further from the thread I posted about my ‘Dead’ Samsung tablet

I’m in the predicament where I cannot charge the battery, and therefore cannot test if the tablet will power on with a good battery. This is using a replacement battery that I ordered, however I don’t know if it has charge in it.

I’m struggling to find a donor tablet of the right size/type/price to use to put my depleted battery into and charge, so wondered if such a thing exists as an ‘external’ battery charger for tablet batteries? By this I don’t mean a USB power bank, but a device I can physically plug the tablet battery into (via it’s connector that would otherwise be going to the tablet motherboard) and provide charge to it?

It's always risky trying to charge a lithium battery without the correct electronic charging circuit designed for that battery, there is a risk of fire or explosion.
