free/trial recovery tools to recover from a crashed SSD

Last Modified: 2020-03-03
Last week, my laptop suddenly powered off & could not be powered on
anymore: the IT guys replace battery, use different adapter but can't
power it on & the 500GB SSD that comes with the X270 can't be
read as well when they mounted it to a reader: this reader is plugged
into another PC's USB.

I suspect it could be due to me using 3rd party battery at that time tt
caused a surge/overcurrent that failed both the laptop & the SSD.

Ontrack is charging $3500 for recovery so I'm looking for tools that
I can DIY to do the recovery: anyone can recommend any tools (if
there's any specifically for SSD): those with free 'trial' can be
considered;  wanted a best chance of recovering data from the SSD.
I might need assistance here with using the recommended tools
