Your battery sounds typical.

It takes a while for a charger to safely charge a battery.  Mine sat for a few months and my Battery Tender charger took overnight and then some.  I just looked and noticed a couple of 6V models on their website.

Some batteries can handle fast charging but they wear out faster.  A slow charge is the healthy way to go.
