I never had the Trinity Real Time 2 Tray; but, I understand it has the same functionality as the Integy Octane 2. My Octane 2 just sits in its box these days. Too much hassle for me in discharging my 4/6 cell packs.
I use the Novak Smart Tray. Its default setting is to automatically cutoff each cell individually at .9V per cell. Or, you can set it to cutoff at any .1V increment from .9V down to 0V per cell. Don't have to babysit it to get these results which saves me from having to watch a pack discharge.
There is a certain way your packs have to be assembled in order to fit into the Smart Tray. With the soldering bars at each end of the pack facing away from the tray, the positive end of the cells needs to be located in the lower right corner as you place it on the tray.
I know I have taken us away from the topic; but, the Smart Tray has been a vast improvement over the old technology.
One point is that the Smart Tray only discharges at 2.6 amps. The others do it at 20 amps.
If you intend to dead short all the time, the Real Time 2 and Octane 2 do have their place. I don't dead short; but, if I ever decide to, I can still do it with the Smart Tray.
