I recently lost the charger for my Galaxy S4. I have a LG G2 charger laying around my house, can I use the G2 charger without causing any damage to the battery of the S4 or should I go out and buy an original S4 charger?

Sure, no problem at all. Only "issue" you might have is that the charging could be slower due to a lower capacitiy. But any harm, nope

The LG G2 charger is clocked @ 3 amps if I remember correctly, while the S4 charger is clocked @ 2 amps. Charging with the LG G2 charger should be faster than using the original S4 charger (theoretically).

its all dependant on the adapter since even a 22 gauge wire can transmit 4000 volts at 80 amps or more

All usb chargers work with all usb charging devices, the only difference is that a charger that provides less current will make your device slower.
