Hey guys, I am planning to buy a new charger for my phone.
I am confused between 1A and 2A charger.

Will charging my phone with a 2A charger have any effect on the battery life, Heard from someone that the 2A charger will kill my battery, Is it true?
As the charger provided by motorola takes a lot of time to charge the battery to 100%, I thought of upgrading my charger.

Please advice!

My device is XT1033 (16GB dual sim)

thanking in advance

The phone will only take the current it needs and can handle, so there won't be any damage to your battery.

2A charger will supply all that the phone needs, even under heavy use (i.e. it'll keep on charging instead of having the battery decrease while plugged in) and it has much better odds of working well with your next phone and the one after that.
