PL-8 1S Battery Disharge Question


I have a Power Lab 8 & GT1200 Charger. I still fly some glow plug engine planes. I can not figure out how to Discharge my 1700 mAh Nicad 1 Cell Glow driver battery. When I hook it up it gives me a message which say "Use Regin Discharge, less than 3 volts. Yes, the nicad will be less than 3 volts when fully charged.
Please let me know how to discharge this battery on the PL-8?

Sorry, both the Powerlabs and the GTs does not support internal discharge of packs that are less than 3 volts. To discharge packs lower than 3 volts e.g. 1 cell NiCad, you would need to use another battery as the power supply and make use the regenerative discharge function. This will allow the 1 cell Nicad to discharge itself into the battery power source.
