To say my expertise in ALL THINGS ELECTRICAL is lacking would be an understatement.....

Here's the quote I was referencing Earlier

If it's designed to draw more than 1 A, then giving it more than the standard HTC charger (what crafty and all other HTC owners get) will let it charge faster.

Battery degradation is largely a function of heat and charging cycles. If it stays cool charging, then the battery lifetime isn't materially changed, regardless.
