    I just upgraded from a 3gs to a 5. Can I still use the same usb chargers that have been using? (with the new USB to lightning cable of course)
    The wall plug USB adapter that came with the 5 is identical to the one I already have. (5v 1A). But I have a Griffin Power Jolt USB car charger that dosent have the output voltage specs on it.

    The voltage really doesn't matter. USB is 5V. It's the current that you want to look at. I'd assume 500mA if there's nothing on it but you could roughly confirm by using it and comparing the charge times.
