11 June 2021
Depending on your usage that could be several years of charging, however.

Its not only about number of cycles, but stage of battery when start charging, do you charge it fully or from 1-10% to top or from 40-60% do you keep your charger plugged in whole night, do you often do quick charges(phone is plugged for less than 5min) etc etc.
But overall it was proven many times that quick charging destroy battery quicker than normal one and its not only about heat, but also material degradation due to higher energy input and just normal limitations of li-ion/poli batteries that just lose quality every time you charge them.

And everyone wanted fast charging,be careful what you wish for šŸ˜±

800 cycles are equal in 2 years

Charge and discharge power is always inversely proportional to battery lifetime. There's no way the quick 200W charger will result in the same lifetime as that of a lower wattage charger.
