Dynamo hub + USB charger + battery lights charged by USB?

Would this setup work? A Shimano/SON/etc dynamo hub, along with something like the Tout Terrain the plug / pedalpower super-i-cable, charging a "normal" battery light that charges via USB.

The thought is to keep the flexibility of being able to move the light between bikes without a dynamo hub.

I pretty much have that setup in the sense that I have the SON 28 Dynamo and the PedalPower+ Super-i-Cable but I charge devices such as my phone and my Garmin Edge 800 not "normal" battery light. I suspect with the light you need to check the required input. Can you for example charge it via your computer? If yes, then I suspect that the PedalPower+ SUper-i-Cable will handle it as well.

The output for the PedalPower+ Super-i-Cable is given as 5v up to 1000mA. I will scan the owner's manual and link to it from the review link above. Might help answer your questions.
