Make sure this is really a "Gel" cell. I started calling everything 
that didn't need maintenance a "Gel Cell" till I realized you have 
SLA (Sealed Lead Acid) and AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) and they are all 

And the deal is, a true Gel Cell, according to some battery tender 
manufacturers, like DelTran, say you need a different charger for 
that Gel Cell while the SLA, and AGM (and Car Battery) can both use 
the same (different from Gel Cell) Charger.

For example, I used to call my 7Ahr Power Sonic "brick" batteries Gel 
Cells but they are SLA.
