Power over USB with Apple usb power adapter 5W (5V, 1A)

Hello everyone,

I recently purchased a beaglebone black which I am having a lot of fun with.
Though I had a question: do you think it is possible to power the beaglebone over the micro usb, using an apple usb power adapter?
The output of it is 5V, 1A, and I believe the Beaglebone’s micro USB is made to work below 500mA but I’m not sure…

A little help to enlighten my ignorance would be appreciated =)

Thank you!

Current wise it is OK.
