My Voyager was lacking that cable, and I had no other way to charge
batteries.  But I did have a second power supply.  So I opened up one
PS and brought power out on wires to a more standard connector, one I
had some of, and created a breakout cable to inject the power to unused
pins on the serial-port DB25; I then wired those to the power
connections internally.

Works a treat.  But it turns out the battery I have is dead. :(
