hello Nigel,quick question...how long will a auto light take to discharge a 3cell 2200mah 25c battery safely to discharge storage mode.would you go past the storage level and then balance all cellsback to storage level?
i really enjoy my powerlab6 but must admit it is a little annoying to my wife who sits by my side on the couch working on her computer and watching tv while i charge or discharge. she never complains but i often come home with packs to be discharged from full charge.
what would be a formula for calculating the 12volt bulbs rate of discharge for different batteries and higher mahs. my highest mah rating is 4000/40c/4cell zippys.
i'm sure this threads been covered before but i'm hoping to see new ideas of ways to help folks who have lots of batteries to discharge at one time. great idea for a topic Nigel. i'll take a picture of a motor setup on a stand to run while screwed down on a work bench away from any areas wind could damage anything...but i never use it any more.
lastly,i could see the bulb idea mounted on a board in a row[or rows] with deans plugs,but what would make a super cheap auto cut off so no accidents of over discharging can be put in the design
. i once forgot the bulb connected and ruined a battery that way
. also bulbs for auto get preaty hot so say 10 on at once may be great during winter,but not so much in your hot summer days..lol
