Description

Details

The new FD-100 external discharger takes the strain of discharging away from your charger and puts it where it belongs - on a dedicated device that's built to withstand the heat.

This compact unit will discharge your 2S-8S LiPos at up to 6A, up to a total power output of 80W. You can easily adjust the discharge current on the device, and if you need to adjust the termination voltage away from the default 3.8V per cell, it's as easy as connecting it to your computer or an ISDT charger for more detailed configuration. (Requires separate SCLinker cable.)

Great Discharger Review by Rusty

I very recently purchased two ISDT FD-100 80W Dischargers. I have read the other reviews posted and agree with all of the good things written about this discharger. I tested both units and found that they will discharge a 6S 4200 mah Lipo pack from fully charged to storage in about 30 minutes. The discharger got warm but the fans did a good job of properly cooling both units. The batteries did not get warm while being discharged at 6A which should result in longer battery life. The lights on the dischargers should be much brighter and were very difficult to see when discharging outside which is why I gave a 4 star rating for service. It would also be good for Progressive RC to provide more information about how to program these dischargers via a computer since that's advertised but the cutoff level was pretty much right on at 3.8 V per cell when stored.

I would give 5 stars if I could program the cutoff for storage level. Otherwise the device works great! I now can safely discharge my lipos in a fraction of time! (Posted on 3/23/2019)

I'll be quick. This thing can drop a Tattu R-Line 4s 1300mah battery into storage in about 10 minutes. Very useful as sometimes you just can't fly as much as you want to in a day. Putting together a field charge kit with a 16000mah battery and this will work perfect when I can't fully discharge it during a session. (Posted on 2/16/2018)

Preface: SEE NOTE BELOW *

I have used this since October of 2017, now 1/09/2018 for batteries that I didn't fly or drive that day. It has worked perfectly and does a quick job of discharging my 2S 5000's, 3S 2200's and 1800 6S batteries. The smart fan has quite a few speeds to it, six or more as you can hear it change speeds as needed, especially on 6S. On 2S or 3S it rarely even comes on. It can get quite noisy on 6S but it completes the job fast. I really like using this instead of my 306B iCharger, no heating up my charger for dis-charging. The dis-charger has a default cutoff of 3.8 V per cell and set to 6A my cells bounce back to ~ 3.84 per which is perfect for my comfort for storage. The felt anti vibration pads that come with it are a bit thin and when the fan kicks in it will "walk around" on a smooth surface.I put some taller square rubber feet on the bottom and problem solved as well as getting it a little bit higher off the surface for better cooling. I would highly recommend this device and ProgressiveRC for their outstanding customer service !!!

* NOTE As of the time of this review 1/9/2018 the optional USB dongle (which I purchased) is useless to set cutoff voltage due to no software available. I contacted PRC today and the reply was " Unfortunately the software has still not been released by ISDT that will enable full functionality of that unit." If you want to adjust cutoff voltage as advertised that feature is not currently available and nin my opinion may not, since it was not released with the device. Time will tell.

Otherwise, push the button today and get a great little dis-charger that is perfect for LiPo's. (Posted on 1/9/2018)

I always seem to charge up too many packs prior to heading out to fly.. so, during the week I would discharge the extras on my 406 Duo.. this worked fine, but I was looking for a stand alone unit..
I purchased 2 of the ISDT FD-100 units.. now I can come home and just plug the batteries into these and they drop the voltage to 3.8 per cell,,, even if a battery is a little out of balance it will bring the cells very close..
They also have a built in fan to keep everything cool.. they do recommend using these on a non flammable surface because they do heat up.
I have recommended these to other members of the clubs I belong to and each has had the same reaction in that they work as stated!! (Posted on 10/27/2017)

Works great for discharging packs. You just set the cell count and pick the discharge rate. The fan seems to work pretty good. Its doesn't get too hot. It starts and stops automatically. It does discharged to 3.80 volts and shuts off. I also really like that its portable. It beeps when it has completed. (Posted on 10/26/2017)
