Hi Bob,

In reality laptops will supply a fair bit more juice, for starters the
power is typically shared between two ports. Then there is a nice
margin on top of the spec limit.

I wouldn't be surprised if you can pull over 10W before the laptop gets grumpy.

Not standards compliant and performance will vary laptop to laptop but
for personal use I doubt you care.
