Need new batteries? Going from 12V to 18V or 6V to 12V? Wiring Questions?

Hi all,
Just got our Gaucho yesterday. The battery seems fine. I fully charged it last night and this morning, it is showing 12.9v.

Anyway, the park is about 10mins walk from us. I'd like to take the Gaucho to the park (my daughter is 4 years old). It's too big to put in my car and take out so it will definitely have to just run from the house to the park.

So I was thinking of getting a 2nd battery so the jeep doesn't die halfway.
Can I get ANY SLA 12v batteries?
If so, am I allowed to get a bigger battery? Say, a 12v 12ah battery like this link?

Much appreciated. Thanks

If you plan to wire the batteries in parallel for more run time then the AH rating of the batteries must match.
If you are just going to swap connectors over when the first battery dies then that battery is fine. It is listed as 14ah.
