Default Will this work?

http://m.ebay.com/itm/141161762448

I have a 2tb USB powered external hard drive, the phone doesn't have the power output to load it up.
If I was to plug it into the above item, with the item plugged into a power socket, would it power the hard drive without frying it?
Would it also charge the phone /tablet?

Thanks

My other phone's a Ferrari.

Work. It is irrelevant to the question though, neither my Windows 8 tablet nor my phone can access it which means I can't give my laptop away until I have a solution - Will this fry the hard drive if I plug it in or should it work just fine?
