I resell stuff, I have a couple New Bright brand lithium ion battery chargers. Both from different thrift stores. They are used to charge battery packs for rc cars.

I attempted to test them but both are putting out between .6-.8 volts when connected to a multimeter. One is rated at 9.6v and the other is 12.8v. The 12.8v one is putting out .6 volts and 9.6v is putting out .8 volts.

I have tested NiMh chargers from the same brand and they put put the voltage advertised.

Do lithium ion chargers not put out full volts when connected to a multimeter and only when connected to an actual battery? Or are both malfunctioning?

I dont have the battery packs unfortunately.
