Its a bit more complicated than simple output wattage but in general
200mw Max for US mode and 100mw Max in EU and France mode.

If you mean, what is the power drain on the battery, it is a simple measurement. Just multiply the current times the battery voltage which you can measure with an ammeter and a voltmeter. If you mean, what is the RF power out of the antenna, then it is more difficult to measure but is certainly equal to or less than that allowed by law. Much more wattage is used by the electronics in coding the stick positions than is used in the RF section.
