    Need a battery charger

    I have a now defunct Coleman rechargeable lantern. The battery is still good. It is a 6V 4.5AH sealed lead acid battery. A UB645 to be exact. It is quite compact 4X1-3/4X2-3/4 "
    I want to use it for a bike headlight but have no way to charge it. Can someone recommend an inexpensive charger ?
    Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    I've been using Zbattery's 12v SLA rechargers for years. Here is their 6v: http://www.zbattery.com/6V-1-3Amp-3-Stage-SLA-Charger

    I have an auto type 6/12 volt charger. It is a trickle charger. Would this get a SLA or NiCad/Mh battery back up to full charge over night.
