Electric RC Owners - This is an essential item for your RC tool kit! It's quick and very simple to use, helps keep the duration of your packs and gives them a better 'punch' after their recharge. I use it along-side a Sprint NX84 peak charger to condition my battery packs.
As previous reviews have said, it does get rather hot when in use, but this is fine as the base stays room temperature (I normally sit it on a coaster!). I deffinately recommend this product.

Nice and simple to use, but takes ages to run down higher capacity packs (e.g. > 4000mAh), even if they have 'dumped' already e.g. at least 30 minutes, often longer. But as it has an auto cut off you can leave where you are and get on with something else - The few loud beeps at the end grab your attention.

Well worth getting, battery seems to last longer after discharge then full charge.

Great cheap discharger, but the beeper is very loud

Good product, it does get pretty hot after a few minutes but its nothing to worry about, normally takes about 5mins to discharge a 7.2v 2200 pack.
