i got the part number off the cable and the comments on the cable wiring
was done with an ohmmeter.   but there is absolutely no indication on the
connector to indicate the connector manufacturer.   the cable moulding has
the usual sun logo, just no indication of who made the guts.    when you
look at the connector on the battery you can see the "tongue" in the center
with conductor strips on both sides.   the connector on the cable is a
metal shell with what would effectively be a rectangular tube of plastic
insulation with the ten conductor strips on the inside edges to mate with
the conductor strips on the tongue.   there is nothing on the tongue or
the opening in the cable connector to deterime polarization, just the
slight trimming of the corners on the outer metal shell which corresponds
to the corners you can see on the battery connector.

i don't recognize anything that would even help hint at the connector
