Default Starter Box Question

I am still learning so take it easy on me.

I recently bought an Adam Drake XXXNT with a starter box. The starter box came with a gel battery. Can I just use a regular car charger to charge this? I really don't want this thing exploding in my garage.

Gel cell battery chargers are only about $10, so you might want to grab one, they are much smaller than a car battery charger. A car battery charger will work just fine, but many times those weigh more than the starter box with the gel cell in it :/
