12 hours at 6 amps is about right. else 24 hours at 2 amps.

Ideally, there should be about 14-14.2 volts across he battery terminals
for about 12 hours and it wil;l be fully charged, the lead acid battery
really needs to be charged under a constant voltage charging supply,
it will trickle off to less than an amp as it reaches full" and will not
gas unnenessarily.
