Default 6volt battery charger

Need recommendation for a good 6v charger that puts out more than 6amps. make, model vendor and price. Seems like all I can find are 2-6amp automatic chargers.

I got mine from Napa 6 & 12 volt = settings 2amp 10 amp 30 amp and 50 amp for
starting. Then I found out (cause I never read instructions ) I charged a battery and
kind of forgot about it, so it was on 30amps for a week and yes it does trickle down
to 2 amps automatically. works and built well.

I bought two Speedways, the second because the first one quit working. Maybe not the same unit. I just bought a Schumacher for more money and it is a much higher quality unit. I think this is cheaper than the one I bought. :-( https://www.homedepot.com/p/Schumach...B&gclsrc=aw.ds

I would stick to 2-6 amps. Faster charging is very hard on batteries. Your smart charger is the only way to go.
