Default Charge rate for 7000mah gell cell?

Just wondering if i can charge my 7k gel cell at 10 amps, because my charger is either 2 amps, or 10 amps.

Thumbs up

Those 7ah gell cells are kinda wierd when it comes to charging them with anything more than those cheap wall chargers, I would do the 2 amps at most.
