Also using fast charge when needed..
Phone counts charging cycles.
Number of cycles is lifespan..

Your S10e has 3100mAh battery, why'd you use the USB of PC for charging which can give ~500mA?
Theory says it'd take 7.47hrs for 0-100% charging.
The supplied 15W charger with S10e would take ~78mins only.

LiPo batteries won't last longer with slow/trickle charging or any other advantages in this choice of overnight charging of yours.

Far better for your S10e LiPo Battery will be 10-80% charging which will take ~43mins. I'm sure you can find 43mins in ~16hrs of Your awake period for charging.
Your PC has to be ON (maybe doing something useful); it can't be even in Hibernation.

my pc is turned off over night, but rear usb ports are always on power, attached on motherboard, i never disconnect desktop pc from main power source, to be completely off because using it every day for work.. it is not hibernated, i shut down windows system to off.
i was wondering are there some negative impact on battery life and capacity if it is charged that way instead fast charging? are there negative impacts on battery when is using fast charging? on samsung and some devices you can regukate or choose between regular or fast charging, but on some devices like Xiaomi and ONEplus i think only fast charging is possible, slow not.
because i know many people charging phones overnight on normal chargers (2A) and it is fully charged for 2 gours and than stays on charger another 6 hours without purpose. it is easyerst way for most people because they dont think about phones, just use them and have no time or interest to pay attention how is charged or when, etc. like a driving a car and take fuel on gas station.
i imagine it is less harmful for my phone to charge it on lower amps for entire night, than on regular amps for 2-3 hours on normal slow charger and leave phone another 5 hours connected to charger without charging..
