Lightbulb Discharging?

Any good threads.. articles, etc.. on whats the good word on discharging now?

I am running 3300's and 3800(ib)

I have 20amp Indi Octane 2 dischargers.. are these still considered OK? I know not modern up to big money snuff.. but I am not a big money racer.

I use an Octane oldschool across the bars with red LEDs.. to take it slow right down to .5v

I also have a Trinity Real Time.. seems slower.. maybe 5amp? or 10amp?

My Indi (see a trend here???) 16x405 charger has up to a 10amp discharge.. but its through the connector - not individual cells.

I am not really looking for new equipment per say? just wondering if what I have is still considered good to use? or is the current thinking.. low amp.. especially for the 3800 and up.. aka 4200s etc..

20amp would be the most I would use.
I have 3300 - 3800 and I discharge at 15 amps
