I have purchased 2 Honeywell barcode scans Granit model in which their battery only charges with USB cable; since this is a factory with production lines, that represents an issue because when the workers turn off their computers at 22.40, the scanner loses power and when their start shift at 5.00 the scanner battery is dead.

I have seen USB ports with a little thunder drawing in the case but this optiplex doesn't came with that ports (only 2.0 and SS)

is there a way to "open power flow" to USB ports so they can charge when the computer is off?
