So I've been using this charger for quite some time. I recently read how you should store your lipos at 50%. I'm about anal about stuff sometimes, and in situations like today, where I fully charged a battery then the wind got way too strong for my taste, so now I'm home started discharging this battery. I tried this like a year ago, and the unit (Not the battery) gets pretty hot, so I quit doing it. That is, until I read the 50% storage thing. So now I do it with a fan blowing on it to keep it cool.
OK, so finally the questions part!
1) I just re-read the discharging section of the instructions, and it said 'we recommend Lipo and A123 discharge mode only for checking the capacity of the packs'. So should I even be using it to do this?
2) It says it is limited to 7W discharge capacity, and 50mA-1A discharge rate. Ummm, what does that mean? I just leave it at .25A discharge rate.
Thanks in advance from an electronic ignoramous!
