    Found a retracting USB to Pin/Barrel connector at Dollar Tree that fits and charges the S7. Keep in mind it may take 6-8 hours to charge over USB. Hope this helps you guys out.

    That's cool. What's the quality of the cord?

    Very thin, but it is one of those retracting style cables and its only a buck, so you can buy several incase they break.

    Is there any concern about getting incorrect voltage with this method?

    No need to worry about voltage!
    All USB "ports" should give a nominal 5v.
    Just make sure the cable is fully unwound a check on heat build up from the current shortly after plugging in.
    I'm going to see if I can track one of these down today and give it a test as well as the Duracell "combo" charger mention in other posts.
