Default i charger regenerative discharge help

I have an icharger 206b and I want to use the regenerative disharge feature so I can discharge my batts at 15-20 amps. I have a 12v car battery as the power supply and have the regen d-charge turned on. I set the amps at 20 and volts at 13. But when I go to discharge, it wont go higher than 3 amp rate.

The instructions are poop on this. Please help

Thank you

Is the lead acid mostly charged?

I think you will need to set the voltage to a higher setting I have found 16V to be about right.

Yep, 16V is about as high as you'd want to go. You'll need to charge a few packs and run your warmers for a while to take some capacity out of the lead acid before you can charge it back up.

I seem to remember there is a watt limit somewhere for the regen discharge as well.

Thanks for the help. It all seems a little to complex and might not even give me the results I want. I just bought a integy reactor 30 and am going to do the conversion for LiPo batts. Itbwas cheaper the the car battery anyway. Guess its time to see if Autozone will take it back
