    Hi. In the manual it says the battery will stop discharging when the battery reaches 12 volts and also when doing a slow discharge to leave the battery on until it is less than 8% or until the battery can't be turned on. If 3 cells are reading 3.05 volts and the other one is reading 3 volts will the battery turn off to stop the cell going below 3v or will it turn off when the pack voltage is 12 volts with the possibility of the cell going below 3 volts.

    Decided to try it and the result was the battery shut off as soon as one of the cells reached 3 volts.

    Look at you... answering your own questions :)

    This is why it's important to discharge the batteries every 20 charges. It rebalances the battery cells.
