For lead acid batteries I have had great luck with the Battery Tender chargers (google for them). These are terrific lead-acid chargers. REGIS (link at bottom) has had the same two batteries literally for years, and it runs around 12-14 hours/day. The electronics battery is charged nightly, and the main motor battery monthly.
The only problem is that you'll need two chargers -- one for 6 volts and one for 12. Over the long run, however, I found that moving to a high-quality charger saved me both time and money. Note that you may find your life simplified anyway if you settle on a single battery voltage, rather than two. Consider dumping the 6v.
Hope that helps -- tAfkaks

I have come to same realization regarding the voltages. I have looked at Battery Tender and they do look good. Thanks Daryl
