    Dead phone after trying a standard regular car/usb charger, the phone would not turn on, or show the LG logo or any screen indication about doing anything at all.

    Sometimes the 3 bottom buttons would flash slightly when using it's original wall charger, but would be dead later.


    Any tips?

    New battery.
    If not then the USB port is messed up.

    It has been known that some car chargers can fry Android phones because the voltage is too high... If a new battery doesn't work, then I believe you've fried your phone!
