Default Advice on Discharger

Hi all,
I understand most would say to discharge the batt to 0.9v

What about this product?
Novak Flatline Dead Short Storage Tray
http://www.teamnovak.com/products/di...ine/index.html
It discharge to 0volt with the novak 3300 batt, aren't this bad for the batteries?

Novak Smart Tray SE
http://www.teamnovak.com/products/di..._se/index.html
Now this says it will discharge to 0.9 volt
Is there a diff?

Much More CTX-D2
http://teammuchmore.com/product_info...roducts_id=362
This has option to choose pulse discharge or linear discharge, is it better for battery?

Spintec Battery Manager Version 2
http://www.spintec.nl/batman2.shtml
Is this a good discharger to get?

I have IB3800 and GP3700 both on stick packs and side by side. What I want is to prolong my batteries and have as much punch as possible. Which is a better choice?

i would personally go for the ctx-d2, has tons of features, it also gives you a lot of information about your batteries like average runtimes, average voltage, internal resistance etc... above all that you also get a voltmeter for every batt which is very useful during discharge and charging,, but if you have the money to spare then it's nice to have the spintec battery manager as well, what it does which is very different from the other dischargers on your list is it decrystalizes your cells giving you optimum runtime, punch, battery life and overall performance on your batteries,,, the only downside on the spintec discharger is it has a tendency to overdischarge your batteries so it's kind of nice to have the spintec and ctxd2 work hand in hand so you can monitor cell voltage on the ctxd2 while the spintec is doing it's thing.

neither the novaks.....

for that you can use the trinity DPD or the spintec. I have one Novak Smart Tray and one spintec v2... what I usually do is discharge 35A with pulse down to 1.0V per cell and then put the batteries on the Smart Tray to equalise.

the DPD is like having both in one box... however I don't have one to tell you how good it is...

cheers,
al
