Where’s the malfunction: battery or charger? Calibrating batteries?

I bought a Kastar battery and charger kit. I picked the charger that can tell the battery’s charge level when it’s unplugged. When I placed the battery in the unplugged charger it reads 1 out of 4 bars. But when I plug it had three bars. I kept periodically unplugging the charger and checking the reading. Stopped when it said it was full when unplugged but not when plugged.

What gives? Is there a way to check if the problem is the charger or the battery?

Thanks
