Just let it charged fully.
The question is why did it discharge completely? Normally you should be able to turn it off (power it down properly) and it should last for a long while before the battery dies again (if you are not using it). But all batteries and devices will discharge by themselves.
The best thing for Touchpads, is to have a Touchstone and have it around as a clock if you don't use it often, then when you do, you can just grab and use.
But once it's been TpDebrick, the power circuit is rewritten and should be fine. I've yet to hear someone say why the charging circuit corrupts, so the dead Touchpad thing is a very random thing... I know I've done mine and since then it's been fine, but it almost always on the Touchstone. (as it was my spare one)
But still, glad to hear that it appears that you've made progress!
