Question: Can I use my LG USB charger with my iPod Nano (5th generation)?

Materials:

LG Cosmos battery:
3.7V
950mAh 3.6Wh

---

LG USB charger:
Input: 100-240V-50/60hz 0.2A
Output: 5.1V (direct current symbol) 0.7A

iPod Nano 5th generation
(probably doesnt make a difference, but iPod cable has a longer 30 pin connector than the newer cables, same USB end)



I could just plug my iPod into my computer, but sometimes I'm without a computer and I need a socket charger, so I was thinking why not plug the USB iPod cable into the LG charger?

But then I was thinking that theres a possibility of voltage differences, etc (not well versed, am taking AP Physics right now :p )

Chances are that it probably won't work, as Apple usually designs their stuff to be "locked down" in regard to what accessories work with their products. Even if it does, I wouldn't risk over volting the nano though.
