i have an Alcatel (5V - 400mA)
PS Vita Charger ( 5V - 1500 mA)
A USB/USB2.0 port will output 5V 500mA (and in some cases 550mA).
The less current the charger outputs, the slower it will charge the phone, which is why charging via cable to USB port on PC is so slow. If the phone really needs 1000 or 1150mA to charge, then using a 500-500mA charger might not even be able to maintain the current battery level.
In most cases, the output rating on the charger is the voltage (V) and max current (mA) the adapter can supply.
While you must match the Voltage and do NOT exceed the rated Voltage of the original charger, usually it is acceptable to use a higher current charger as the phones will draw as much current as they need without exceeding the max output of the charger.
I charged phones and headsets that shipped with 550mA chargers using 750, 850 and even 1000mA chargers just fine. And I use a 1000mA(1A) and 850mA chargers to charge my X at the moment.
So you should be able to charge via the PS Vita charger.
