Which is more efficient for a battery to suck up?

Please don't make it more complicated than the question is


the 25 amp charger (that's the simple answer to me)

but that's making assumptions of SOC and charging source

but a 70-100 amp one would probably be even more efficient for the first couple hours

what good is a 4 amp charger anyway? My refrigerator uses more power than that

BTW - I didn't read anyone else's answer because I don't care, this is MY answer

Don't blow air up my rear, be useful and blow it at the sails!
