Default Which dischargers are available?

I'm looking for a discharger, with auto cut off at 5,4 volt and a discharge rate at 20-30 amps.

I'm only looking for separate dischargers, not the ones built into a charger.

I'm not interested in building a bulb discharger.

I'm knowing of the CS Cap Check Pro and Integy Reactor 20/30. Are there other choises? Preferable with a link.

Thanks.

Deans pre-built bulb discharger is another option.

Orion digital discharger. 20A/30A adjustable. pretty cool stuff to see exactly what's left in your pack, only disvantage is, it's got to be hooked up to 12V, and it's a rather big package.

The MPH Products Tracklight....auto cutoff, preassembled, good stuff. You can get them through B&T Batteries.

If you are looking for a discharger, try to get something that does a non-linier discharge (simulates driving loads) as it is much better for maintaining your packs condition.

Thanks all.

That Orion thing could be an option. But in that case, I would save up some more to get the CS Cap Check Pro:

20 Amp pulse discharge
shows average voltage
shows discharging time in seconds
shows capacity in mAh
discharges 5-7 cells
adjustable shutoff voltage
discharge to zero function
optional PC-interface
12V supply voltage
shortcut- & crossconnection protected

CS

But both the Orion and CS is out of my budget range (at least for the moment).

So I'll probably stick with the Indy Octane 30, preferable the 20, so I can discharge a completely charged pack, without heat problems (I dont like the idea of putting a fan on the cells).

But the Indy Octane 20 is out of stock

So I'll have to see....

Between, the light diodes on the Octane, what's the purpose and how do they work?
