" ...  The charger works as advertised. ... As with any charger it is important to remove any latent surface charge from the battery so the charger can read an accurate voltage. ... If you find it was at say 70% while charging, you disconnect and reconnect and it says 100% that is the surface charge. ... Turn your headlight on for 30 seconds before connecting the charger the second time and it will read accurately.  ...  "
