I have the following used but load tested good 12 volt gel cell batteries.
These were removed from burglar alarm systems every 3 years as preventive
maintenance and will usually provide another good 3-4 years of useful service.

1 - 12v 4AH 4"H 3.5"W 2.75"D $14.00 shipped conus
2 - 12v 6AH 4"H 6"W 2.5"D $16.50 shipped conus
3 - 12v 7AH 4"H 6"W 2.5"D $17.50 shipped conus

Charging is similar to nicads. 10 percent of rated AH capacity at 13.8 -
14.5 volts for 12-15 hours. I have successfully used a 1 amp automotive
charger for about 3-5 hours depending on AH size and deep of discharge but
fast charging gel cells is not recommended as it will cause the cells to
heat up and boil the gel away over a long period of time.

You can email me if you need more information.
