The Powerlab will switch to internal discharge when the Pb batteries are full. To increase the discharge rate, you can add a load in parallel to the Pb battery such as a string of automotive lights. Or you can add a couple more Pb batteries to increase the capacity of the Pb bank.

You can also discharge the Pb battery to 50% before the regen is started to ensure there is sufficient capacity in the Pb battery. When done, be sure to top off your Pb battery as its better for the battery.
