So just need to know, it should be used or not with Moto G..

Shouldn't be a problem at all!

Moto G takes up to 1.5A max while charging.

The higher the charge, the faster the phone will charge.

I have bought several high amp chargers for the Moto G, and charge times are all roughly the same, they're all a lot faster than those cheap 0.5A chargers.

When you charge with a light charger, like 0.5A, you'll definitely see a huge difference in charge speed.

So, with a 2.1A charge current in your powerbank, you'll be charging both fast and without the powerbank (or charger) running dangerously hot.

If charging isn't going as fast as you'd expect, try another USB lead. I have bought several, and it can make a huge difference using an A grade USB lead.

Most of my better performing leads are thicker, but not all.

Things have changed a lot in android in the last year or so in regards to power usage. In recent versions of android, parts of the phone like gps and bluetooth do not use any power unless/until they are actually being used. You can see this yourself by leaving them on and checking your battery usage stats. No longer do you need to be turning stuff like gps, bluetooth, gyro, etc on and off to save power - just turn them on and leave them on - they only use power when they are actually in use.

Back in the froyo days, we used to have all these tasker tasks to turn things on and off. Now, android takes care of the power management and does a damn good job of it!
