An equalizer will bring each cell down to the same level of discharge.
That way when you recharge your less likely to have a cell peak sooner than another causing the pack to peak to soon and shut off before the other batteries in the pack are fully charged. I'm starting to sound like a wizard?
It must be confuseing to be the wizard?
As far as run time your insured more at a higher peak voltage if practicing the balancing method of battery maintenance.
Only guessing? But I would say as long as your pack is never discharged more than half way? I would guess balancing is not nessesary. And if performance is not an issue? Then I would just charge and run to heck with maintenance.
