Slightly dull question about charging a battery / a battery charger..
Due to medical stuff I've not been able to ride my bike over the winter, so the battery is pretty low / dead. In the hope that there's be something to charge up I've hooked it to a battery charger but nothing seems to happen.
To clarify, if I turn on the battery charger but don't connect the leads to anything then the 'Power' light on the charger comes on. As soon as I attach the leads to the battery (or touch the leads together) then the power light on the charger goes out and, as I say, it does nothing for the battery.
As soon as I remove the leads the power light comes back on again...any ideas what's going on?
