✔ Best Answer
Iv looked up the specs for the charger and it says that the charger should output 8.4 volts at 0.9 amps.

On the charger itself you will have three pins one would be negative, one positive and one would be the feedback to check the battery state of charge (SoC). If you can determine which is negative and positive you can check the voltage with a multimeter.

However i would actually be suspecting the battery as they are more likely to fail than the charger. Incorrect charging cycles, heat, moisture, heavy usage etc play a part in battery deterioration. They are fairly cheap so i would recommend buying a new as the cells in your current one are probably not able to hold a charge. Very common gor batteries.
