Just put the battery in the discharger with the bars facing where it shows, tighten the thumb screws onto the pack, and press start. Each LED will go out as that cell reaches it's full discharge.

Thanks Randman. I should have been more specific. What do I do with the Alligator clips? Do I attach them to my power supply? If so, what do they do?

Thanks.

Thanks! Tried it and it works. Took an older (1 yr. old) pack GP3300, which I have never equalized and had been consistently taking only about 2100mAH per charge and it took 3200mAH on the first charge after equalizing and cycling! Nice!

Get it from Speedtech RC, click the link in my signature for that. It will equalize your cells after you run the pack, and condition them to keep em goin strong. It is also said to help raise the voltage of the pack slightly when you recharge.
