I just bought 2 glacier 5000 mah 2s receiver packs
They do not have a discharge rating on them

And I would like to know how fast I can discharge them
down to storage voltage

I haven't found any info any where

Was not aware that they didn't have a discharge rating

I bought them for the sole purpose of powering the servos/receivers in my nitro/gas heli's

The brand seems to be considered a good value for the money

Most Rx packs are rated at 10C discharge.

Discharging rate will be limited by the charger and the highest Ive seen is 5A.

Most just discharge by flying it instead rather than wasting a cycle.

Consider a lipo alarm set to 3.7 and enjoy a shorter flight.

The charger I use has a max discharge rate of 2A (TP610C ac/dc)
I have the discharge set to stop @ 3.85
I figured I would set it @ 1A to discharge while I am tinkering

I am just somewhat concerned that they don't have a discharge C-rating on them

I didn't ever think that a manufacture wouldn't have a discharge rate on a battery pack even if the pack is designed only as a RX pack

Why wouldn't they ??

Aside from the max discharge rate of the battery itself, the connector used can also be a limiting factor.

2S 5000 mAh packs for an RX?

Sounds like main batt packs for the ESC/motor....
