Many people want to discharge their battery at high rate over 20A, what do they want to see? AVERAGE VOLT.
But I don't think higher average V always means "Punch".
Each cell has different discharging characteristics, so you can't say "same Average V cells mean same charateristics"
If you discharge one battery pack with different dishcharging amp,
you'll see capacity is almost same but average volt changing.
That's why many people want buying high amp dischager.
According to our test, Internel resistance is muchmore reliable.
Lower IR shows always much punch.
Cell master shows very accurate IR.
Low IR means "the voltage recovering speed is very fast"
If two cell's IR are same, that means both has same volt recovering speed.
When I cycle my packs, now I see only capacity and IR.
We doubled the original IR value for showing much differences between each cell.
also I don't have to kill my battery packs with high amp discharging for just seeing "data"
CM's 10A dishcharging never kill your battery, show right capacity and how much punch your pack has with "IR".
If we make CM as 30A discharger, the size will be triple!

I've got a question about the charger...
It's only capable of discharging at 10 amps and most of the battery threads will tell you that discharging below 20amps isn't any good. I've always been suspicious about why you have to discharge at 20amps or more and I'm curious if Hara and company are just using the 10 amps or if they have another discharger they use.
I love the size / features of the Much More charger and power supply and would seriously consider them if only the 20amp or more myth could be debunked. I don't want to buy a seperate discharger because I could just pick that and a couple of Novak chargers for less.
