The one from my nexus 5 or the one from the nexus 7 2013?
Ideally I want to be able to charge either device.
The QI states 5v 1500ma input.
Also what's the best app to monitor the charging, time, input heat etc?

It can be used with either the Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 AC Adapters. The Nexus 5 is 1.2A and the Nexus 7 (2013) is 1.35A I believe. Neither will fully power the Qi charger, but it will still be enough to make it work. The charging time for your phone will just be longer since the Qi charger is not being provided full power, so the current the Qi charger can provide to the phone will also be lower. If you want your Qi charger to operate at full efficiency/power, try to use an AC adapter that is 1.5A or higher.
Since your Qi charger only requires 1.5A, the Nexus 7 AC adapter is the closest, so I would recommend using that one.
In the future though, you might want to consider buying a higher output AC adapter:
The Blackberry Folding Blade Charger is 1.8A output, and microUSB, so you can plug it directly into your Qi charger (or phone if you ever need to charge you phone at rocket speed!):
The Boxwave Fast microUSB charger provides 2A output, microUSB as well, so if you ever buy another Qi charger it would be good, as many Qi chargers require 2A input.
You could also just buy an adapter similar to the Nexus 5/7 without the cord attached. For example, something like this.
As for the app, with all of your criteria, I would suggest Battery Monitor Widget
