LM2101 mower charger. Battery not loaded. I get a spark and a little pop at the plug when I plug it in, and the charger fan runs for a couple of seconds. Is this OK, or should I just leave the charger plugged in and insert or remove batteries as a charge is needed? I feel like a device should not cause a spark at the plug when plugged in.
