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.
USB ports don't support hard drives unless something was changed lately. Have to use a memory stick.
