Default Equalizing Tray Confusion

I see this tray for equalising which I may buy



But it only has the clamps on 4 cells. How can this equalize each cell?

The top left pos. one acts also as the seconds cells neg.

So on and so forth...

1st pair = cell 1

2nd pair = cell 3
3rd par = cell 4

4th pair = cell 6

2nd cell uses one from the 1st pair and the opposite from 2nd pair
5th cell uses one from the 3rd pair and the opposite from the 4th pair

Okay, so just to confirm. This properly equalizes each cell like one with 6 clamps would?
Also, does anyone know what this dishcarges each cell down too

In my experience only dischargers with 6*2 clamps equalize to the tenth of volt (ie: robitronics).

Never had experience with this discharger though.

i'm using this type discharger too but only for my Ni-Cd 2400, because this discharger will discharge your battery until 0.0x V each cell & Ni-Cd type batteries need this discharger to lessen the memory effect of No-Cd cells

It will discharge all 6 cells.

The reason they only have 4 is that they rely on the pack's battery bars, so really in certain spots it's like it's contacting 2 batteries.

^touches cell 1 neg

[/crude drawing]

However, you'll only want to use this on Ni-Cd or GP3300's without constant supervision, as IB's and IP's don't like being discharged down to 0V.
