For a 19T I would buy the Orion 19T V2 or the Checkpoint Money. You don't need a discharger, when the cells start to drop off they are low enough.

I don't discharge very often before charging. Mainly only if the packs have sat a long time and I'm going racing I cycle them the day before. Just run them down in the car, let them cool, then charge em back up. All is good. Leave the battery voodoo to the stock racers.
