I use an Indi Reactor 30 - always worked great for me. The 10 and 20 should work fine too. Maybe grab the 20 to save a little time.

br-200 is out
Integy Reactor 10 is out
Indi Reactor 1.25 is out
Integy Reactor 20 is okay (Pack Friendly)
Integy Reactor 30 is better (harder on your packs)

Personally I use the Inetgy Indi Octane 2 it discharges at 20 amps and cuts off at 0.0v per cell without reversing

I would use the indi reactor 20. For discharging a battery pack quick, but without generating excessive heat, that would be my first choice, but I would also buy a equlising tray to equalise my packs after the initial discharge (assuming you are not using stick packs, if you are dis-regard equalising tray).
