Take a 12 volt 7ah battery and wire a 7905 voltage regulator to that per the data sheet. Connect the 5 volt output to a usb socket per this pinout and you have your super usb charger.

I won't guarantee that you won't destroy some of the things you're trying to charge since some things actually converse with the data port and tell the computer how much power it needs.
