Steve, this is a commercial myth. It is true only if you want a gel battery fully charged. the battery tender cannot do that, on the other hand it cannot charge fully an acid battery either. Battery tender is able to maintain a certain level of charge, mostly just enough to start the bike, from there on your alternator takes over.
Any regular battery charger is good enough to charge a gel battery, but do not over charge, use a timer.
