It's better than nothing, but not by much.

The discharge rate is very slow on those, and they don't equalise.

I used to have a slow LRP discharger and never used it.

thats a super slow discharger, i had one and used it mostly for 1100 batteries. gets warm and smells funny. they tout its for "stick packs" or something when it first came out.



save up some cash, and get yourself a decent discharger. 40$ and you can find a good one here used.
