Angry Battery Tender

I did something stupid.
I turned the key to look at the clock on the bike and when I turned it off I turned it to parking.
It was hooked to the battery tender.
The battery drained and it seems I used all the electricity in the tender also.
here is the question
Does the battery tender have a fuse inside or did I fry it?
I wanted to check before I drilled out the rivets and looked
TIA

If the battery went completly dead the tender will NOT charge it up. It only works on a weak battery not a dead battery. Give the battery a bit of time on a regular charger first, lacking that hook it up to a car battery (car engine off) with jumper cables. Make sure you monitor it while you do that for heating of the battery. 15 minutes should do it, then try the tender.

The bike and battery are fine. Used my regular charger to take care of that
the tender is dead
Does the battery tender have a fuse inside or did I fry it?

The fuse is usually in the external cord between the unit and the battery contact connections (clip-on or bolt-ons).
If not, open up the Tender and take a look-see.
