I'm wondering if fast charging a battery can be harmful to it and affects it's lifespan?  Would using the slow charger incrase it's lifespan or does charging speed have no effect at all with battery life?

Let's see, my original 4ah battery which has always been fast charged, for about 4 years.  I see almost no change in performance.   So I say minimal.
