Default Intellipeak discharging question

I recently bought an intellipeak deluxe charger and was wondering about the discharging rate. While Iíve been happy with its charging of both nicd and nimh batteries I am concerned about damaging them with its fixed discharge level. It is fixed at bringing a pack down to 2.6 volts instead of the recommended 5.4 volts. My general understanding is that Nimh should not be brought down any lower than 5.4 volts when storing , but nicd should be completely discharged.Also Nimh should be compleatly discharged before recharging them, please correct me if i'm wrong. So without buying a separate discharger to bring the Nicd all the way down or measuring the Nimh with a voltmeter to make sure it doesnít go much lower than 5.4 volts what would someone do with the discharge component of this charger. It seems completely useless since I canít discharge either of the types of batteries correctly. If anyone who has this charger or anyone with suggestion could give be their input I would greatly appreciate it. By the way itís the deluxe version.
