I needed to change my order. ProgressiveRC reacted faster than any other vendor I have dealt with, via email. Thank you!
Onto the discharger. ISDT made a very nice unit. It frees up my charger!
Positives: It’s super compact. The fan(s?) aren’t obnoxiously loud. The alert beeps ARE loud enough to get my attention. I like the phone interface capability.
So-so: You don’t get to change the cell count in the software prior to connecting the battery, and I seem to struggle getting the software to react and let me into that menu. My big disappointment is not having the ability to balance discharge. I balance charge, but putting the battery into a balance discharge state would be nice.
I don't know how I lived for so long without these. Actually, yes I do: annoyed and inconvenienced all the time. These are awesome, and the do exactly what it says on the tin. They discharge, and they do it extremely rapidly. Just be sure to have an xt60 female-to-male-whatever-you-use adapter on hand, because it doesn't come with anything. It's just a metal brick.
The user interface, such as it is, requires one or two uses before getting the hang of it. Or 3 or 4.... I keep the instructions handy because I keep forgetting. It's just two buttons, but .... Yeah, keep the instructions.
