You might try a search and see if you can find any instructions on the net.
The larger ones will work just fine. I have friends that use them for power supplies all the time for battery charging in our radio control hobby.
Since they are voltage regulated, all you'll have to do is plug them in and hook them up to the battery.
Have one you want to get rid of?
