    Any decent quality USB power unit will work fine.

    The "charger", the battery control part, is built in to the phone or device with anything that uses a USB port to charge from.

    The external / wall plug can be thought of as just a 5V power outlet.

    The only thing that really affects is how fast the device charges. It will be slow if the current rating of the USB power unit is not high enough.
