Ah, welcome to Instructables. My choice #3 in the previous comment is a highlighted link to USB charger instructables found on this site that might help. And you can use the reply to comment to make sure the commenter gets notified to come back to the topic to take a look.

sorry for the small letters but its says 5 pins on each side and the red dots are the pin places

1. Can you get a new cable?
2. Can you find out what the pin configuration is and make your own cable?
3. Take your pick...
Good luck.
