One thing I did when I was experimenting was take apart a cheap charger and use its contacts for the battery connection. Makes connecting easy. Then used alligator clip leads from the charger. As mentioned, don't expect more than 1A or so, unless the phone can charge faster. For example, the Kindle Fire can do 2.5A. So if its battery were removable, you could probably use that as a max charge rate without tripping the protection circuit.
