Ok, so it's not like it will affect performance by discharging at 10 amps versus 30 amps then right?

So for the time being, I could get by with the 10 amp from the Pulsar?

Personnely i can't see it being a really bad thing, if your only doing it at the end of using them.On the other hand if your trying to condition them you really need to be at 20amps minimum
Now, with that being said then what is the TRUE amp rate discharge of the Dyna-pulse or the Spintec? Sure, it gives you the numbers at the 30 amp rate...but what is truly discharging at ????
