But the human body is essentially a big resistor. Since Ohm's Law says I = V/R, it takes a high voltage to overcome the resistance of the human body and push enough current through it to do damage. A 5V USB charger won't do it regardless of what kind of amperage it's capable of producing, since the resistance is too high.
