Battery charging

When charging a 12v battery, where the voltage is at 11.8v, would you charge at a 2 amp rate or 6 amp rate ? And for how long ? And what should the charging meter read when the battery is fully charged ?

Charger - Schumaker SE-28-6

I believe that for a 12V battery, like in a car, the voltage should be greater than 12V. More along the lines of 13.2V. When the battery is fully charged, the current meter will go down to 0A. If you are reading 11.8V after charging, I would suggest that you have a dead cell in your battery. If this is an automobile battery, take it to an autoparts store and have it checked.
