Look for Blackberry chargers. I picked up a set of 2 on ebay for $5 w/free shipping. They have 6' cords and charge extremely fast. As fast as my N7 adapter I use at home. I keep one in my pack for school and one at work. (i know you need european but i'm sure they have those too, just note BB has quality accessories)

Any universal 1-2A/5v charger will do mate.

Not all are the same. Not even close. I've used 2A chargers with a faulty cable that brought it down to 500ma. You will know when you find a good one, it will charge 0-100 in 40 minutes.

Is there any way to quickly check the output amperage from a charger? Can you take accurate readings from the phone with an app or something?

by reading the very fine print on the charger. usually it will say output = xyz.
