If there's not a "smart" circuit that senses when the battery is full and shuts off the charger accordingly, then the battery is going to have a charge constantly pumped into it, which will be burned off as heat, lowering battery life.
Ummm, no sorry but batteries pull a charge, chargers don't push it. So when a battery is drained, the battery pulls lots of current and as it reaches a full charge, the charging current drops and drops until it is just a "trickle" - assuming the charging circuits and battery are all good, that is.
