Default LRP Conditioning tray does not cut

Hi,

Either I'm not getting something, or there's something wrong here...

When I place my batteries into the LRP conditioning tray, it does not cut, it just continues discharging... in the manual, it says that discharging will stop at around 0.7V per cell, but when I measure each cell with a multimeter, some are at 0.65, while others at 0.7... some time later, the value just keeps on going down...

Any tips? Or is this normal?

i might be wrong here.... but..

if i remember isn't that a diode board? its not exact science so the cut off would be somewhere around .7. does it have lights or anything? i presume like any other older discharge board, once the lights go out, it'll be CLOSE to the .7 it claims, but then.. it'll slowly keep going down.

maybe some cells are at .65 because it discharge differently.. *shrug* or the diodes are a bit off.. i dunno...

all i know is, i bought a novak smart tray and have been happy.. ;P
