Ideal charge rate for average use

Hey team,

I’ve got a 72A charger that works well but my question is, should I be using that charge rate nightly? My average use is to run the car down from 70% to 40% (takes a week, my use in way down without my daily commute) and then charge it back up on weekends at 72.

Is it more ‘efficient’ and better for the long term life of the battery to lower the charge rate to something like 24 and just keep it plugged in every day? My power cost is constant no matter time of day.

Thanks physics and electrical folks out there..
