You miss read my post. I never said leave them stored on the Novak. I said store them equalized and I recommended the Novak to do that. Your comment can be the same for all discharge and equalizer trays. We all know the cells will usually increase in voltage once they have been discharged but hopefully once all the cells are brought down to the same level, they'll all rise to the same level as well still being equalized.
