Default noob discharger quesioons concerns

Hi I would like to state that I am new to electric....but not to RC

I have a simple question and have used the search but to no real avail...its late and my eyes are starting to squint.and hurt.

Basically I just bought some matched packs 5 3300 GP's to be exact and I have a few sport packs..

My question is does anyone know a link that will explain the different types of dischargers.... and the pros and cons to each..
I was looking at the integy zero v and like them..but do they run to 0v or 0 amp draws.. and do the tray dischargers require a power supply???
I know if you run a bulb discharger you need a shut off protector..

and any recomended products would be nice as well I am trying to stay under 40$
Thank you for any help..............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Send a message via Yahoo to pinggoy

you need power supply for those high discharge amps like the zero 30 since it makes the battery hot. with the gp as what i have read before that its alright to drop them down to 0 but for ib you need to drop it down to .9v .. novak smart try is the cheapest one that has a digital display of how much voltage left in your cells.. i think you will be alright with your gp batts with any discharger..

the zero v
6s and novak dead short tray are all the same they are individual cell dischargers that use resistors as a load and all go to 0.0v
so buy which ever is cheapest unless your sponsored, than just use what ya given. (wouldnt that be nice )

Ideally an integy 0-30 for a quick draw down at high amps, then a Novak Smartray, set to the per cell amp level you wish to equalize to. The GP cells are hearty, and there is no problem bringing them down to zero if you wish. Of all the equalisizing trays, I find the Novak Smartray to be the best.

Good Luck.
