Number of batttery charges in lfe of battery

I have had a Volt for 3 weeks and am wondering what is the impact of using a faster charger versus a slower charger. Specifically how many charges should I get in the life of the battery? And does that change if i usually use a faster charger than a slower charger?

While stressing over the rate of charge, consider the rate of discharge. At best the battery can be fully charged in 4 hours, but that full charge can be fully run out in less than 1 hour. And, with momentary (regen) charge rates of 60kw, that "fast" 3.8kw charge rate is really easy on the battery.
