Default dischargin

Is there a single solution, that will basically take my 4 and 6 cell packs down to .9v a cell @ 30 amps, and then give me the ability to take each cell down to zero.

We used to use a turbo 35 and a tray. I am getting back into the hobby and I want to get something to take the run time out of my packs and then equalize them before charging.

Integy 0-30 and a novak smart tray... Unfortunately, the 0-30 needs to be babysat. There was a rumor of a new tray from Integy, but nobody has ever seen it. Btw, get the smart tray 1.0 if you can, the newer version has been known to have strange problems (otherwise I would probably already have one..)

I'm using the Team Wave Lighting V2. Doesn't have that much features as CTX-D, but it's less expensive, got it for 100$.

Yup, Team Wave Lightning v2 is the pick.

20A pulse to .9v, then 8A linear diminishing down to 1A all the way to cutoff

For now, I will be using a Integy 0-30 to discharge my packs, Im usualy pretty aware when my pack is discharging. The lights go out when it hits .85volts per cell. but if you leave it on there for a long time like afew hours or w/e, then it will keep going down to 0.00. IB's dont like to go below .7-.9 volts per cell, but EP's are kinda like GP's where its ok if you go down to like .3-.5 per cell. But in the future, Ill use a Smart Tray V1 to tray them to like .7 after they cool from discharging on the integy 0-30 discharger. ill do .9 if racing is short to help save time.
