Right, the manual says that it will supply 500mA at 5V in the armrest port.

I know the glove box port one does not, but I don't know it's rating. I tried plugging in a USB HD in the glove box port and it wouldn't even spin.

Also, the manual states that you should not attach USB hard drives in either the glove box or armrest USB ports.
