Question about USB charging for batteries

I've got a wall wart charger that connects by USB cable to my tablet to charge its battery. I've also got a pair of speakers for the tablet that charge by connecting via USB to the computer. Would it be safe to use the tablet wall wart to charge the speakers?

I know the USB standard should be the same but this method of charging built in batteries is new to me.

George Zimmerman relaunched his personal website on the same day that he gave his first media interview about his shooting of Trayvon Martin.

“This has been the most difficult time of my life. I have been charged and arrested for murder, I have been accused of being a racist, and my family and I have to live in hiding because of threats against my life. I am not a murderer, and I am not a racist,” Zimmerman wrote.


“This is not my website, this is our website,” he told supporters. “I am going to use this as a chance to communicate with you and listen to you, and as an opportunity to share important things about the case.”
