It will take for ever to discharge a fully charged pack of cells on the nosram discharge tray as it is designed for equalizing a pack of cells.
You can do it by running a motor on them but may also take a while and be noisy.
Years ago before dischargers were available we used to make a discharger out of car headlight bulbs. we used to have 3-4 bulbs conected in series and made a cage to protect the bulbs out of stiff wire. You then solder two wires to the end of them and add croc clips. You are then set up and ready to connect the light bulb discharger to you pack. When the bulb goes out the oack is discharged.
WARNING: this was good for nicads as they liked being discharged down to zero. If u are doing this with 4200's be carful, use a volt meter and disconect the bulb/bulbs before the voltage drops below 5.4 volts.
Yuo can use as many bulbs as you like, the more you connect the quicker the process and higher the discharge ampage.
This is a crude way of doing it, but it works and is cheap.
