Also, with a USB 3.0, it can provide up to 900mA or 0.9A, which translates into 4.5 watts. These power output specifications are a rating based on the 5 volts from each standard output. However, the USB 3.0 dedicated charging and charging downstream ports provide up to 1,500 mA or 1.5A, which translates into 7.5 watt

What’s the WATT / power output of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0É

500mA x 5VDC 2.5W for USB2, 900mA x 5VDC 4.5W for USB3 — These are MAX values. That data was in the table on the Wiki page
