I would say, cause it's probably been determined or possibly proven by others that it ISN'T A GOOD IDEA!

mdbee possibly they are referring to the older "gel batteries" which should not be fast charged or over heated damages the gel). The newer "AGM" batteries should work fine.

There has always been a lot of confusion about "gel", "maintenance free" and the newer "AGM" (advanced glass mat). They are all different.
