Maybe you already have, but you might check if you can actually get that connector without some crazy minimum order of 1000 units.

It seems you need a 6 pin connector (two for power in, two for power out, and two for USB data). The power grounds could be shared, getting you down to only 5 pins. Binder makes a nice 6-pin M8 IP67 connector that I've used, but it's down to 0 stock. Some other possible sources for similar miniature connectors:
