Default Is my drill battery charger ruined?

I put my drill battery in its charger and plugged it in and forgot it outside. That night it rained and the charger got all wet. I checked the battery and it still works but the charger doesn't light up at all. I tried a few outlets to double check it but there's still no charging light. Is it ruined?

My 9.6V Makita charger just quit one day, not due to being wet. I opened it up and there was a blown fuse inside. Got a replacement fuse at a local electronics supply and it's been fine since.
