Battery charger hooked up while running engine

I have a mallory magnetic pickup distributor on my sbc and it now runs like it has an electrical issue. I found out I had left the battery charger hooked up to the battery for awhile when running engine and sometimes it was plugged in and sometimes not. Do you think the magnetice pickup module on the distributor has been affected by having the battery charger hooked up? I do not have another module to change out and did not want to buy another one until I got some opinions. All other trouble shooting for electrical issues has turned up nothing. What do your folks think?

It's entirely possible, but Mallory is not the name in electronic ignitions that it used to be. Some people have compared them to Accell .

Any thing is possible. But most battery chargers have regulators in them so as the battery is charged it cuts the amperage back. So when the alternator started to charge the battery charger would cut back. Yes this is over kill for a charging system but should not have any problems.
