We don't charge extra for more letters. Why don't you spell the words in full ? Writing in stupid makes you look "un-intellgent" (sic)

when you increase voltage - by any means - you have to decrease the available current - nothing for nothing! - as you USB won't supply 2 amps in the first place your idea isn't going to work.

You will have to build a power supply or get a wall wart.

+1 You can't get that much amperage from a 5V 500mA source.
