Is there a third type? Like, plain VRLA?

Is it bad to leave these on float charge forever without ever discharging them? (UPS, alarm systems, emergency lights...)

FMA didn't add this mode. I did. On my charger. They just allowed me (and any user) to raise the cell voltage.
Ah I get it now, they already had that mode and just modified it to allow a custom voltage.

I would guess those are AGM batteries as most stuff indicates that gel is lower charging voltages. As for cycling them not a clue there's so many different opinions on what is best for PB batteries. I would say ask the manufacturer and just do what they say.
