    wall charger

    a usb can take up to three times longer, and a usb can also be harmful to your battery in the longrun due to the fact it doesnt give out the right ammount of volts, but dont get me wrong its ok to use USB but not all the time

    If it's the stock wall charger then definitely the wall charger.

    If it's not stock, it depends on the mA that the charger puts out. USB is 500mA. Stock wall charger is 850mA, IIRC.

    Should be closer to the wall charger than USB. USB is limited entirely by the hardware infrastructure, so it can never go higher than 500.

    Check the car charger; the MA rating should be on it somewhere. But in general it probably won't be lower than the USB option.
