How to I make a solar USB charger charge an iPod Touch? Answered

I bought a solar USB charger the other day it says on the back
Output DC 5.5V  800mA

What steps to I need to take to make this charger charge an ipod when I plug in my USB cable?
[i.e. in terms of getting it to the right Voltage and Ampage to charge the iPod Touch (2nd Gen) ]

Thanks in advance!


Isn't 5.5 volts the correct voltage anyway?
