What I've read about Lithium Ion batteries (and most other types) is that a fast charge reduces the overall battery life.  Can the charger be set to slow charge if desired?

We understand your concern for your battery’s life. There is a lot of information available about lithium-ion batteries, but not all battery-charger systems are created equal.  

Our EGO Power+ battery-charger systems are specifically designed to promote the health and well-being of all EGO batteries, so you needn’t worry that rapid charging might reduce the overall battery life. Accordingly, we do not  have a slow-charge setting for the chargers. Both of our batteries have been extensively tested with both of our chargers. You may note that you can hear a fan running in the charger while the battery is charging. That fan-cooled charging technology and the electronic communication between the batteries and chargers are in place to protect the batteries. 

We stand behind all of our batteries and chargers. All EGO chargers and batteries are backed by our 3 year warranty.
