Can you charge an SLA battery with a car/motorcycle battery.?

so I have a 12v 7A SLA battery that I want to charge with a 12v motorcycle/car battery charger. the charger states that it charges 0.8A until fully charged then goes to a trickle charge of 0.05-0.15A.

Will this charger be ok charging my battery? Or will it knacker it out?

    That charger should do the job just fine, but it will take time. Be patient.

    Charger is about the right charger for your battery.  Charge the battery overnight.

    It will be fine - it is a 7AH battery not 7A and the charger is the perfect tool for the job.
