doing 2amp, isn't that a bad idea to charge when they want 1amp?

No. That just means the device is capable of supplying 2A, not that it will push out 2A into a 1A device.
Correct.
Charging current is never "pushed".... it is always "pulled" by the device being charged and if designed properly, the device will never pull more than it's capable of.

That is what I read, so I went with the 2.1amp capable ones.
