I'm not battery expert by any means, but I do know that you can discharge with the Ice charger. When using the ice for discharging I always did it at 10 amps. Most stand alone dischargers do it at like 30 amps. I think the benafit of the higher dicharge rate is that you will get a higher voltage. I'm sure somebody with a better knowlege on this will chime in.
