It is designed to get all cells to the exact same voltage individually, hence equalizing them, the time depends on how much life is in the pack if it take more that five min use a bulb discharger first till the lights just start to dim, or run it in you car till it just starts to slow then throw it on the discharge tray.

This confused me also. I have a thread going in the Offroad forum about batteries and discharging.

here is the link:


The above poster covered it but basically you discharge with a discharger typically to 5.4Volts, then you use the tray to equalize the cells in your packs.
