I use my Quasar Pro charger to discharge. Other methods besides a charger are the old standby lightbulb discharger, or several companies are making stand alone discharges that work great. Whatever method you go with make sure it has some sort of automatic cut off so that you can avoid cell reversal.

After my packs dumps, I discharge it on the Novak tray. Before I charge the battery, I put it on the Integy tray for 5-10 minutes and then charge it.

I use my LRP Pulsar competition and bulbs combined to discharge at 20 Amp (this way when the Pulsar stops at 5.4V I know when to stop the discharge) then before I charge they go on my Novak smart tray to equalise.
