Charger output 11.37V?

Is it normal for a Hobbico Charger to only output 11.37 V? How can it charge a 12V battery with that low output?

MKII Charger only charging 3S1P to 12V instead of 12.6V

My MKII charger only charges my 3S lipo paks to 12V or so, most charges give you a full 12.6V (4.2V per cell). Is there a solution to this problem?
