    A: Hi Hermione, If the USB is being powered from a PC or Laptop then the maximum current is 500mA but if other devices are connected it would be less, from a wall power supply it is typically 1A. A colour changing LED takes between 20-50mA depending on the colour being shown, so even at the maximum you could have around 10 LED’s and still be ok.
