3 AAA batteries work out to about 4.5 volts so it would be slightly underpowered.  Maybe ok for and emergency charge but won't get anywhere near full power.

Here's a pinout diagram of usb.

Without some sort of current limiter you could ruin what ever you are trying to charge or just drain your batteries and end up with nothing charged.
