    I got this Scosche model. One of the few I found that puts out over 2amps. If you look around you can find it cheaper that the Scosche web site.

    This charger by scosche caught my eye.

    Is scosche a reputable brand? I have never heard of this brand.

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

    Yes. They have been around a while making different adpaptors.

    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.
