Default Integy Octane 2 Discharger Questions

I have this tray/discharger. Im discharging gp3300's with it. I wanted to know when I should disconnect the batts if I wanted to cut them off at .9v a cell.
Also, what voltage are the batts at when the lights are dim, and when the lights go out?

if the lights go out that means they are .9V pul them off If you leave them for @ least 12hours they will drop to 0.0 if they are dim then I don't know, use a voltmeter. I also use the Octane 2 but only for brand new cells. Other wise I use the Novak Smart Tray so I can see what each cell is doing.
Hope this helps
Take Care,

Agreed. We use this tray for our 3300s and love it. You can leave the pack on for an hour and be assured you have discharged it well. The cells can get hot, depending on how much is left in. We put two small computer fans inside and hook them up to our power supply. Also point a car fan stand at the batts.

Used other trays and this one is the best overall. We no longer use a separate Indi discharger.

Thanks for the help guys.

This is a little off topic but, rcdad, you are saying to leave the gp's untill all the lights are out? This would mean they are at a low voltage, near 0.0v right? How would this help the gp's?

What I do is disconnect them when the lights go dim so they are equal but I would imagine that if you wait untill all the lights are out completely, its definatly equal.

Also what is the overall voltage in the battery when the fan turns off?

Hi Paul: what really helps 3300gp, the ones that are green and orange is to be held at 0.0v when cells are discharge individually they do not need be stopped at .9 each cell, that rule only applies when dicharging the pack with a device other than a tray. go check integy tech forum there is plenty of info about it.
