Default Do I need a special battery charger for AGM?

I just replaced my two 4-D batteries with West Marine AGM. I have a Nautalus 25 - 25 amp 3 stage battery charger connected to the shore power system.

Do AGMs require a special charger or will this one do the trick?

Thanks

Bill

Provided that the Charger does not have an auto equalisation cycle (unlikely) and was set up for regular ('flooded') batteries correctly, Yes, it will be OK
