You can only storage charge a fully charged battery if your charger has a discharge function. BUT........... most of the smaller chargers (under 500watts) have a very small discharge capacity which means a very long time to reach storage value.
So if your charger has a very limited discharge capacity, or none at all, then you can discharge your battery below storage value with an external load like an automobile tail light lamp. Then charge up to storage value with your charger.
