Yes, you can use as 12v gel cell, no problem, Just be sure you use a CVC style charger or equivelant specified charger. You can also use two 7.2 volt stick packs that will provide more punch but not as much starting time.

The 2 six cell packs are lighter as well. I'm guessing you would also already have a charger for them.

That 12 Volt 4 Amp gel cell will give you a days worth of starting and more if properly charge. I have a 12v18Ah in my tool box that you may have seen at the Brick. I just connect a wire between the tool box and starter. I also have a 12v11Ah for the starter box itself.
