Arris tg1682g USB Port Power

Does anyone know how many amps the USB ports supply on this gateway?

Do you mean amps or volts ?

Amps. I need at least 2.1 amps.

They are USB 2.0, so 500mA or 0.5 amps.

I thought the USB port is disabled on that gateway?

The last one I checked still had power to it, but not functional for data transfer.

Excuse me for marking the post as answered. That’s because it has been. My apologies.

I’d love to hear though if there’s any gateways that Comcast rents that provide 2.1 amps.

I don't know the reason, but Comast seems to have no interest in the USB port. It seems like it would be a useful addition to users to have a usable data port/ power port on those devices. Seems like a 3.0 USB post isn't asking for too much. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I agree that it’d be nice to plug a flash drive into the gateway and use as a cloud drive. There’s plenty of other companies that offer such a solution. In this instance I’d just like to use the port to power a raspberry pi.
