Hi guys,

i need some help with the Icharger 208B. How do set the discharge current In LIPO DCHG mode??, im confused with the first setup screen. There, in the first line, you set type of battery and the final voltage. But in the second line, where you set amps, in the manual says this is for setting charge current, not discharge current. The manual is wrong? this is discharge current?
I want to discharge at a rate of 2.6A. Thanks for any help.

The discharge capacity of that charger is only 30WATTS.
That will only be 1.2AMP on a 6S pack.
What size battery do you have?
These chargers really don't do very well discharging big packs.
I build myself a discharger just for that. Besides taking forever on my charger, I don't un-nessarily stress the charger.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter

Thanks for the info. 30 watts!!? The lipos are 6s 30c 2650mah. There is a feature of the 208B, regenerative discharge? what is this? can use this feature to discharge at a higher rate?

Regenerative can be used with a partially discharged lead/acid battery.
You end up basically charging the lead/acid from the LiPo.
This can go up to 20AMPS.
There is also something call External Discharge.
Where the charger with monitor the battery being discharged with an external load.
You need a big wattage resistor or any other load.
Many use automotive tail light bulbs.
This will go to 20AMPS also.

Thanks, TheWoodCrafter
