Hi, I've been using the battery charger supplied with my chair but it doesn't have an automatic shut off this has resulted in me over charging and frying the batteries

I am having to buy new batteries now after ending up stranded due to bad batteries but I want to get a new charger with auto cut off

only a problem the charger I have is 8amp but I can't find an auto cut off charger which is 8amp, they are all 2,4 or 6 amp (mainly 2 and 4) can I use a different amp as long as the voltage is the same as the batteries?

I've only been using a wheelchair for a few months (and having fried some batteries in 3 months i think I NEED to get a new charger as ive got 3 kids so its best to charge over night so its out of the way and i can't keep an eye on it overnight) so I still am a bit clueless
