Solar Device Charger: No complication required? Answered

Hey community!

Anyways, so I have a fairly simple question for everyone who's solar-savvy out there today, and it's about a fancy thing called a USB charge cable. Now, I may as well be a specific as possible, seeing as it's really for one device, but I may expand this project to ellipse more than one device.

Here the question: Do charge cables and USB hubs automatically (built-in) regulate voltage, or am I going to have to get funky with some or this stuff?

If you think you have the answer to my prayers, or need me to elaborate a bit, feel free to respond.

Thanks!

So the general consensus seems to be that the average USB uses about 5V. Does that sound about right?
