It worked perfectly when I put it up for storage. I took it out last week to use on a mower battery. When plugged in, not connected to a battery, the 'charged' light comes on. What should I check? I'm 73 and ran an auto repair shop for 35 years, so I am familiar with battery chargers and their functions. thenk you for your help!
