Its almost certainly 5v - now I think about it, you used to get these 
with TWO usb cables - one usb-usb , one usb to power - so you get
twice the power out of the computer by using two usb ports

like this one

If you can find the right plug (try Maplins) then you could pinch 5v off 
the computer psu - or indeed get a usb to power lead.
