Oil Type / USB Port Amperage

Hello to all - I am new to the forum and have a couple questions. I have a 2010 Volvo S40 2.4L L5 DOHC 20V - Engine: B5244S7

1. Reading the owners manual it is not clear whether to use to SAE5W-30 synthetic or premium oil. The owners manual states "synthetic oil is not used when the oil is changed at the normal service intervals". So if I don't use synthetic, what oil am I to use?

2. I have an iPhone S, the AC to DC charger provides 1A DC power into iPhone. Now regarding the USB port within the center console, what amperage does the USB port provide?
