Wait a month and there will be knock offs of the Apple cable. Check with OWC as they will probably have it first.

UPDATE

Here's my answer on this from a previous question:

You can get power this way :

I see a second data port on the logic board in the teardown. The flex cable for the hard drive in the 2010 machine is Apple Part # 076-1360. I could not find a picture of it but there's a very good chance this will work. http://www.myservice.com/store/076-1360-...

It is an Apple proprietary cable, and the only one that will currently work is the Apple one. So, if you plan to add the second drive you need to get a second Apple proprietary cable.
