Glad to hear the battery replacement guide is helpful!

iPad lightning port guides are a bit trickier than many because the lightning port in almost all iPad models is soldered onto the logic board. So not a repair every person is willing to undertake themselves. But charge port replacements are not terribly difficult as far as solder jobs go and it would be a great way to learn if soldering isn't currently in your skillset. I would still recommend getting some practice in on something else to get a feel for soldering in general if you have never done any before.

You'll have to get the logic board out, which is it's own endeavor, that also doesn't have an official guide but here is a video that shows the process of actually replacing an iPad charge port so you'll get an idea of the process for the port itself. This video is for an iPad Air (I think, Jesse doesn't actually mention). But the idea is essentially the same for nearly all iPads. Including the Mini 4.

UPDATE: As @dadibrokeit pointed out, there IS in fact aLogic Board Replacement Guide for the cellular model. There will me minor difference, but overall it is largely the same process, minus some antennas and the SIM slot.

As it turns out, there is an iFixit motherboard replacement guide for the iPad Mini 4 LTE version. I know there are going to be some hardware differences (like the fact that you won't have a SIM card to take out in yours), but I'm sure they're similar enough that it'll get you where you need to be.

Oh, ran across this interesting note on the guide I mentioned above:

Parts of this guide were shot with a Wi-Fi model and as such the internals may look slightly different from the LTE model. The procedure is the same for both models except where noted.
