Default Integy Indi Zero-Equalizer

Does anyone know if this is a good discharger or equalizer? It's going for 15.99 on Ebay. I was wondering if it had an auto cutoff at 5.4 volts. Where can I find some detailed info. about it? Thanks.

It has a zero volt cutoff......it discharges at 0.5 amps.....I think it's pretty good for the price......since I always bring my cells to zero it's perfect for me, but If you want one that has adjustable cutoff points....just go for the novak so you wont have to sit there with a voltmeter the whole time, disconnecting the cells one by one as they get to where you want them.........Joe

I don't want to pay $80 for an equalizer if the Integy will do the job. I don't mind watching it if it doesn't take too long.

Haha, I just bought the other one he had up for sale, I got it in 3 days too. I think it is cool for the price, I have a turbo 35 so I just hook it up to my battery and monitor the voltage . I think it is good for the price.

Does the Integy discharger matter what way the batteries are inserted. I have my positive in the upper left. Usually this is called a reverse pack.

At .5 an amp how long does it take to bring a pack down to zero volts? That is after it has been discharged on my T35.

Thanks,

Does this discharger have a cutoff switch after it brings the batteries down to zero volts?

Also, what is the difference between the Zero-equalizer unit and the Activator-x discharger?

I'm not really sure because I don't bring my packs down to zero. My understanding was that you aren't supposed to leave the Ni-mh batteries on the tray for very long, I just discharge them until the pack has an overall voltage of 5.4 volts, but that is ni-mh too, if you have ni-cd it is a different story I guess.

Yes it has a cutoff at zero volts as mentioned in the second post on this thread........if it wasn't for that it would reverse (damage) the cells......

I don't want to nitpick, but you wrote in another thread that it discharges at 1 amp. I know the Activator-X discharges at 0.5 amps, and the Booster 2 at 1.75 amps, so I guess 1 amp for the Zero-Equalizer sounds about right.

But what is the main difference in the Zero-equalizer and the Activator-x. On their web site, the Zero-equalizer is 19.99 and the Activator-x is 12.95. What is the difference? The web site doesn't say.

Thumbs up difference

I am pretty sure the difference is the amps they discharge. The first one discharges your packs quicker.

Your right Bandini, I was mistaken When I said 0.5 amps....it's a 1 amp discharge rate as I mentioned earlier.......
