I just made the leap to my first full frame camera. I bought the original 6D. However, I noticed that the battery that comes with it is a LP-6. I also one several LP-6N from my apsc cameras. Do I need to use the charger that came with the LP-6 to charge that battery or can I use the one that I have with my LP-6N? I would rather not carry to chargers. However, I would rather carry two charges instead of damaging the batteries.

I'm guessing you mean LP-E6N.
The LP-E6N is replacement for the LP-E6. The "N" version has slightly more compacity. (1865 mAh vs. 1800 mAh)
It uses the same LC-E6 charger - no difference there. There is no new charger for it (not needed).
It works in every camera that would have used an LP-E6 battery.
Also, I don't think the LP-E6 is actually made anymore. A while back B&H Photo used to list both models. I ordered a new pair of LP-E6 (not even aware that there was a new LP-E6N) and the "N" version was delivered. I phoned and asked them, they told me it was the replacement for the LP-E6. These days they don't even list the LP-E6. If you search their website for an LP-E6, only the LP-E6N shows up in the search results.
