I would tend to disagree.
They may use the same componants and techniques, but one company has a good quality control mechanism where the other just punts any old stuff out and accepts that they will have to replace some of it.

It says 2A on the faceplate. Is that 2A per socket or 2A total?

Stick a multimeter on each output and you will find out easily enough. I would though be stunned if one of those was able to produce 4A total output.

Not sure that'll work: it surely depends upon the load, and an ammeter on its own is a short circuit.

Is only about 20W. Doesn't sound that much to me.
