I'm basically looking for something like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Anker%C2%AE-Du...t+wall+charger

but where both ports will charge Android devices properly. Everything I have found is either a) 1 Android 1 iPhone, like this, b) two iPhone or c) more of a desktop charger and too bulky to fit in a single outlet.

Does anyone have a recommendation for a two-port charger that fits in a single outlet that would charge two Nexus 5s or a Nexus 5 and a Nexus 7 at full speed?

When I search for dual port usb charger on Amazon, there are a lot of results that match your criterias.

Besides this specialized for iPhone or Android is marketing bullcrap.

It's not, at all. iPhones expect there to be a voltage across the data pins to determine the maximum power provided by the charger while Android phones expect the data pins to be shorted. If you use an Android phone on an iPhone charger you end up only charging at USB charging speed (500mA) rather than AC speed (up to 1500mA).

I bought one on Motorolas website, its like $30, comes with a USB Cable, all OEM made for android devices. I know what you mean about it saying one iphone and one android. This one is OEM so you will be OK.

Hm, that looks nice but I'm concerned about the power output. It lists it as a 6W/1.2A charger which would not even be able to charge the Nexus 5 alone at full speed (1.5A) let alone the two together. I would assume that if you have two devices connected you would get 0.6A each?

I just got this one because (finally) it is a charger that doesn't use up multiple sockets in a power strip. The whole charger is the size of the plug:

If you think the apple port won't work well with android devices, you could get one of these gadgets:
