You can use the USB port on your Surface Pro 4 power supply to charge other devices, like a phone, while your Surface charges. The USB port on the power supply is only for charging, not for data transfer. If you want to use a USB device, plug it into the USB port on your Surface.

Surface Pro 4 User Guide on Touch, keyboard, pen, and mouse
- Touch. You can use your fingers on the touchscreen, the same as you would on a smartphone. For example, drag your finger across the screen to scroll. For demos of the gestures you can use, see The Surface Pro 4 touchscreen. You can also type on the touchscreen—see How to use the Surface Pro 4 touch keyboard
- Type Cover keyboard and touchpad. The Type Cover for Surface Pro 4 (sold separately) clicks into place when you want to type and folds back out of the way when you want to use your Surface as a tablet. Because the Cover is perfectly sized for your Surface Pro 4, closing it puts your Surface to sleep while it protects the touchscreen. The Type Cover includes a touchpad that supports Windows 10 gestures. For more info, see Touchpad use and settings on Surface.com.
- Surface Pen. Take notes, draw, and mark up documents using the Surface Pen that comes with your Surface Pro 4. Click the top button once to jot a quick note in OneNote, double-click to take a screen capture straight to OneNote, or hold the button down for a second or two to open Cortana. Write, draw, and tap naturally with the Surface Pro 4 tips —while the tip is near the screen, Surface ignores touches from your hand. Flip the pen around to erase with the top button. A button near the tip lets you right-click without changing your grip. For more info, see Using Surface Pen (Surface Pro 4 version).
- USB or Bluetooth® keyboard and mouse. See Connect a USB mouse, printer, and more and Add a Bluetooth device
