How many Amps can the X6 discharge a 1s LiPo on a power supply safely? 10A?

Why do people view this as some sort of witchcraft voodoo?
How hard is it to take a picture of what you got hooked up to the charger? Simple

There's literally a drawing of how to hook it up IN THE MANUAL!!! If you still can't figure it out at that point, pay me and I'll fly out to do it for you, since apparently NOBODY can be bothered to do a little research before asking that things be handed to them.

Default Making one

Tell you what just ordered my resistors if I get it to work I'll post how I made it and may decide to make some. I'm making it to discharge 30 amps one cell and discharge 2cell 30 amps hopefully Amazon will deliver my resistors Saturday September 1st and I'll try to post something right after that

Thank you for helping us peon's figure this out.

I'd buy a 2s 30amp resistor bank and a 20 amp and a 10 amp bank if someone were to make them. just saying.

Is this calculated with the lipo pack voltage at a fully charged state?

Has anyone been able to do a 30A regenerative discharge on a 2s? I can't make it work. using a 6s pack as pwoer source. Any help would be appreciated.

I use an iCharger DUO 406 now. I don't own the chargers or dischargers I was speaking of any longer and I never thought I would need to snap a picture of a product doing something it clearly spells out how to do in the owner's manual.
