AGM battery charger

I just bought a TurboStart AGM battery that’s supposed to be like the original Autolite that came with the first gen mustangs.
It states that the maximum charging voltage is 14.4 volts and it specifically says that max charging voltage should not exceed 14.4. I bought an X2 battery charger from BatteriesPlus that has an AGM mode and it charges at 14.7 volts. Am I going to damage this battery by using this charger? Seems like a trivial amount but I don’t know much about these things. Paid almost $400 for the battery and don’t want to damage it!

I've used a CETEK smart charger for years on all my batteries, regular and AGM, including my very expensive classic battery in my 67, works fine. It has a separate setting for AGM as well as a "reconditioning " mode.
