Will USB port charge devices?

I have a device that charges from a USB port and I wondered if the USB port on my Surface Pro I will charge that device if it is plugged in.

I hesitate to try it unless it is OK to do.

It depends if the device requires the full 5 AMPs or can get away with the 3ish AMPs the SP delivers....the power brick does deliver the full 5 AMPs.
