Won't a 210 ahr battery need at least a 90amp charger or an equally powerful alternator to get a true full charge? With less, won't the battery degrade in its ahr capacity kinda quickly?

I have not heard/ read about ah losses due to low amp charging.
I am still under the belief that slow/ low amp charging is superior to fast / large amp charging. In short the fast charge is reported to dissipate faster.
Could you enlighten me with some information or a link ?
I seem to have a gap in my knowledge bank.
