Can I Power any Third-Party Accessories from the USB Port on my EOS Family Console?

Symptoms/Issue

If I plug in any USB powered accessories or my cell phone to any of the USB ports on my Eos Family desk, will they work? 

Description/Explanation of Issue

No. Those USB ports can provide enough voltage to power a device like a Gadget 2, but not enough to power other USB accessories like a desk light or to charge your phone. 

 

This applies to Element, Element 2, Ion, IonXE, Gio, Gio@5, Eos Classic, Eos Ti and RPUs as well as all Congo and Cobalt family consoles.
