Since the charge port on the Powerboast board is micro USB, the input charge voltage is 5V.
From the FAQ the current used in the charging circuit is up to 1800 mA
Note the 1000c could probably run a RPi Zero or maybe a headless RPi 1, but not likely to do well with a RPi 2 or 3.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
