Security options needed

I'm getting ready to turn in my phone to upgrade, but the problem I'm now having is it won't encrypt so I can then factory reset it. The phone requires 80% battery power before it'll initiate encryption, but the USB port is bad and may not be able to get it to charge that high. It's a non-removable battery, so replacing it or an external charger isn't an option.

Is there any other way to effectively wipe the data? Or is this even much of a concern when turning in directly to a carrier store?
