Battery Charger LED Lights - Meaning?

I have picked up a battery charger for my deep cycle batteries. When connected to power both the red and green lights are steady. Is this the charging indicator? Will one extinguish when the battery is charged?

Charger: Charge Pro by Guest
Battery state: unknown (they could be fully charged - I do not have access to a volt meter

Thanks

Yes.

When the red LED is on, it indicates that your batteries are discharged and is recharging them at the "Charging" rate (stage 1).
If the red LED stays on for more than 24 hours, refer to Problem 1 in the troubleshooting section in this manual.

When both the green and the red LED’s are on, it is charging at the "Finishing" rate. (stage 2).
If both lights stay on longer than 24 hours, refer to Problem 2 in the troubleshooting section in this manual.

When the battery approaches full charge, the charger switches into its third charging stage, gradually reducing the current feed to the batteries to as low as 0.1 Amps. At the same time, it reduces its output voltage to a “Float” or “Ready” charging rate of 13.3 VDC, indicated by the green LED light.
The green LED indicates that your batteries are now fully charged and ready for use.
If the green LED stays on when your battery is known to be low, refer to Problem 3 in the troubleshooting section in this manual.
