    Battery charger ?. Odd experience

    Ok, so charged my GEO battery and MS battery last night. My GF unplugged the chargers after the green lights went on but left the battery plugged into the charger. This has apparently drained the batterys for some reason.

    Does leaving the battery plugged into the charger drain the battery?

    Thx

    In short... Yes. With the battery connected to a charger that's not plugged in to the mains, the charger becomes an electrical load on the battery (at least for the type of charger that you're using for these batteries).
