    Charge time -- how fast?

    My hooptie light system is an old 6v Cygo Lite twin bulb. Since the original battery was leaking, I bought a bigger sealed battery which should yield a longer lasting beam. The new battery is a 6v, 4.5 amp/hour battery -- pretty beefy. The original charger output is 500mah, which according to online calculators, yields ~ 11 hour charge time for this battery.

    Question: How "big" a charger can I use with this battery? Is 1000mah too much?

    Thanks.
