Is ∆G=-nFE used when the battery is at equilibrium? I thought Lavelle said something along those lines, but I think I may have misheard.

I think its G* = -nFE is used at equilibrium. The equation you gave is if it's not at equilibrum

If it is at equilibrium you will have the naught symbol on the delta G and the E. If there is no not naught symbol, you can assume that the system is not at equilibrium.

Reactions at equilibrium usually have a º symbol. So, ∆Gº=-nFEº would be at equilibrium.
