Hi all after spending a couple of hours discharging a large 6s lipo on a turnigy accucel 6 and feeling the tremendous heat coming off the charger I decided to buy a discharger,i must say that there are plenty of great ideas on how to discharge a lipo on youtube but I decided to buy a discharger with lots of great reviews. The ISDT FD-100 80W 6A cost me £23 plus shipping,it arrived this morning so I started discharging my 6s 4000 and 6s 2700 lipos one by one this afternoon,i had 8 in total and it took less than 6 hours,the discharger has an alarm that peeps at you when the discharge is complete,all of my lipos were discharged to approx. 3.8 volts per cell. I am well impressed with how quickly it discharges lipo without all of the heat [ internal cooling fan ] you can discharge 2s to 8s and discharge rate is 0.5A up to 6A money very well spent

Me too but I am struggling to get parts for my older helicopters and that is why I decided to discharge all of the 6s lipos until I can get the spares.
