    So you want 5 2A chargers in one plug? Wall outlets are limited to 15A max, so good luck with that.
    If you're going directly compare amps like that you need to make sure the voltage is the same. Your household outlet is supplying 15 amps at 110 volts, or 1650 watts. His desired phone charger would output 10 amps at 5 volts, or 50 watts. In other words about 0.5 amps @ 110 volts, plus some conversion losses for AC->DC.

    Good point. Wonder what the conversion factor is and how much heat is generated during the process.
