how much charge was in the pack. you should use a indi reactor or something like that first. then use the tray to finish the dischage.

Yea, how much charge in the pack? The Smart Tray shouldn't be used to discharge; just equalize once the pack has had the majority of the power drained.

Dont' used this of your packs still have a lot left on them it will get hot not to mention it takes a damn long time to discharge a whole pack. I used it for couple of weeks then I got rid of mine.

I'm still waiting for integy 090.....

Keep your tray but buy yourself an Indi Reactor 30 or a 030 tray to dump your cells then put them on the Smart Tray. Smart Tray is only used to equalize the cells, not ment to do a full pack discharge.
