Depends on the battery type. You should limit the charging current or the battery will over heat

Nominally from flat around 14 hours at the recommended rate of charge. Some using an intelligent charger that monitors battery temperature or the charging rate can charge faster.

You need to look at the data sheet for the battery it will have recommended charging rates on it.

The Radio control world is a good place to go for fast battery charging information.
