What brand tray is good for NiMH, specifically the sanyo 3000HV. Are Integy's good?

Default One more tray question...

At what rate does the tray discharge each cell? Is it just a simple resistor for each?

i have a real time2 and that is a 20 amp discharge so i am guessing they are all about 20 amps.

How does using a discharge device such as the Indi Reactor 20 differ from using a tray w/cut off?

I believe the Real Time 2's discharge rate is only 5 amps.

I think so. I opened mine and the resistors are 10W 20 Ohm. Not 20 amp for sure.

In the case of the Trinity trays, that's all they have, and of course a fan to prevent total meltdown

The Robitronic that you see in the pic has diodes to assure a cutoff voltage of .8 per cell.
I opened my Trinity tray and I can see that's very easy to install diodes for cutoff. I will have to put the packs in a certain position but at least I wont ruin them (this may be a bit extreme, but any matcher will tell you that you SHOULD not discharge your NiMh down to 0V). I assume they are right...

Two of my Sanyos 3000 were showing very strange signs when I used the Trinity, but now they seem to have regained some health. The car does not crawl like before.
