Default charger discharger

hi guys.. can i use my much more charger built-in discharger like a discharging tray?? coz it has adjustable cutoffs.. but ofcourse 1cell at a time.. is there any difference between the discharging tray and discharging at the charger..

I do the same with my supernova, discharging one cell at a time down to 0.9v, works but is just slow... but better than spending heaps on discharger that will be obsolete as soon as lipos become mainstream

The more energy in the cell the higher the current it can deliver and maintain its voltage.
As the energy in the cell diminishes, while drawing whatever current, the voltage drops until the cutoff point, at which time discharging stops.
There is still energy in the cell.
If you start discharging again at a lower current, the cell can maintain its voltage for a bit longer.

I discharge each cell at 5amps till cutoff, then 1amp till cutoff.

oh thanks.. so maybe the advantages of discharging tray is 6-7cells at a time and it can hold the voltage cutoff?? is that right???
