voipsupply.com seems to have the "power cubes" as they call them,  
available for $13.95 each, new.

alternatively, I have seen Cisco 3524 POE switches that will of  
course, do the right thing with 7940's for about $300 on eBay.   
Depending on the number of phones you are using, you may find that a  
cheaper way to go.
