think its used so that the batteris have a longer life, it like a memory thing so that your battery doesnt have life problems,
the black box might be used because some guys may leave the battery in thier car, and it protects the cell or something

not really sure lol

Wrong.
It's an electronic device that goes between your battery and a discharger (like a bulb discharger) that allows you to discharge your battery w/o fear of overdischarging the battery. Plug the battery into the black box, plug the black box into the bulb discharger, press the button and soon you'll have a perfectly discharged battery.

Anyone know (remember) what voltage the old "Black Box" stops the discharge at? I seem to recall .9v per cell, (for a 7.2v battery pack) but I dont know for sure.. Thanks for any info!

Any modern charger will discharge. Better. As long as its digital and adjustable.

Yeah it should cut off at 5.4volts. Heck I still have one. That was high tech when it came out.
