Default discharging

i'm looking to get a "good" discharger, finally. What kind are out there, i.e. what companies make them, and what's the best one for a good price.

For an individual discharger i would personally recommend a indi reactor 30 amp unit. Compact and very good. www.kthobbies.com carries them

Default Discharger

Build a discharger out of 10 #1157 automotive bulbs....wire both filaments. That will give you a 20 Amp discharge......

Also buy a dishcharge tray (Trinity Real Time 2, Integy makes one as well)

When the bulbs go dim, place the pack on the tray and equalize the cells

Let the pack rest for about 30 mins before charging for best results

Default Reactor 30 Discharger


I also have the Reactor 30 discharger. What I didn't like was the Fan ran continuously with the Pack hooked up. This would cause the Pack to be pulled down below 0.9v if I wasn't watching carefully (the Reactor 20 does not do this).

I re-wired my Fan to only run while the Pack was actually discharging and lengthened the leads a bit too. I like it alot better now.

I've been using the Orion Digital Discharger with very good results. It hits 5.4v @ 20 amps perfectly every time....
