When your not in a hurry use the lowest amp setting you can for best results.
Batteries will get sulphated sitting over time in a discharged state. The slower you charge the better as it gives more time to slowly dissolve the hardened sulphates back into the acid. Even for a new dry battery you have to add the acid to after you buy it it's a good idea to slow charge for same reason.
Charging slow never hurts anything and is better for the battery.
You just don't want to charge to high as that can boil the battery or over heat the plates and warp them.
With Gell or Glass Matt types charging to fast can also trap bubbles inside which weakens the battery.
