The SkyRC BD250 35 Amp LiPo/LiHV/NiMH Battery Discharger & Analyzer displays real-time battery voltage, discharged capacity and discharge current, making it a great option to use when you need to identify your best batteries for competitionThis is also a great tool to save time when discharging for storage, as it allows you to discharge your battery faster than when using a standard discharger. 

Plus, you can use the PC software to export battery discharge data to your PC, allowing you to see which battery performs best! With PC software connected, the BD250 allows you to export the battery voltage values at 30 second intervals (for the first six minutes). The slower the voltage reduces during discharge, the better the battery performance. 


Features:
  • Simple, Robust & Powerful: Upgraded from BD200, the BD250 is a powerful discharging device that allows you to precisely measure battery capacity. It takes the guesswork out of choosing the best performing battery for your application. BD250 offers a maximum of 250 Watts/35 Amps to discharge your battery and will test virtually any battery type or size. It's small, with a high-performance cooling system and uses MOSFETS from the well-known IXYS, to make sure it can discharge at 250 watts continuously.
  • Breakthrough Cooling System: A unibody and larger fan pushes air downward through an extruded aluminum heat sink. As air passes vertically through the heat sink, it absorbs heat and carries it out. Due to cooling efficiency, BD250 can discharge at 250 Watts continuously.
  • Simple & Intuitive Operation:
    • Rotary Dial, simplifies operation.
    • Digital LED Display to provide clearer information.
  • Easy-to-Use PC Software for Data Analysis: BD250 is a voltage oriented discharger. Accepted voltage ranges from 5.40V to 35.00V. After the discharge process completes, rotate the button to view the real-time battery voltage every 30 seconds for the first six minutes. The slower the voltage reduces during discharge, the better the battery performance. This feature can help select your best performing battery. Plus, with PC software connected, BD250 allows you to export the battery voltage value at 30 seconds intervals (for the first six minutes).

I love this device so much, that I own two of them. I use them to discharge 3S to 7S packs. They not only discharge packs much faster than a charger, but I prefer to use my expensive chargers just for charging, and let this dedicated discharger do what it is design for. You can always make your own DIY discharger which may discharge even faster than this one, but this discharger discharges pretty fast, it has a relatively small footprint, looks good, and the discharge end voltage is adjustable. I generally set the discharge voltage to storage voltage.

If your looking to discharge batteries fast or want to find out which packs you own preform the best then look no further. This is definitely hands down worth every penny spent. Used to hate waiting almost a hour to discharge a battery at 2 amps or less on my charger. This will do it much faster and safely. A Main had it in stock and got it to me fast.

Easy to use, works just as advertised. Took me longer to solder the wire leads than it did to figure out how to operate the discharger. A must have if you are wanting to maintain your batteries.

SkyRC BD250 35 Amp LiPo/LiHV/NiMH Battery Discharger & Analyzer (35A/250W)
After my hi priced smart dual charger/discharger started coughing up error messages and refusing to function. I bought a small stand alone charger and the Sky Discharger. It was very easy to figure out the discharge settings with the dial and info screen. While my dual charger was very complicated to use, you had write out a program script for it to charge. very simple, he only thing it lacked was the IR of each cell which was how I rated my batteries. Now I rate them on MAh read out after discharge. I recommend it. it is faster than using the discharge capacitor banks on the dual charger.

Giving a 3 star review because of the price. The unit itself does what it's supposed to but you can buy elsewhere for way cheaper/$90

Pretty good discharger it would be nice if it had a little more Watts and if the voltage is accurate but other than that it's really nice.
