If I must discharge I will connect an automobile tail light bulb.
The only reason I will discharge a LiPo is for preparing to throw away.
When I fly my planes I will time the flight to achieve proper storage voltage.

I charge at home and sometimes I don't get to use them all

I fly helicopters with 12S (2-6S batteries) and my planes use 6S

Most normal balance chargers will also do a storage charge/discharge, which is really what you need.

I'm sure that was what he meant.

I have an ISDT FD-100 and it works great. Most chargers have a very poor discharger setting and take forever to drop a battery down to storage level.
The fd-100 does it much faster. If you look around you can get one for about $30 including shipping.

I have three of those.. (kind of a little discharging station next to my charger.) Absolutely perfect....

I only do 2S to 5S, but for me these things are great. They’re cheap and do the job perfectly.

I did a DIY halogen lightbulb discharge. There are several how to videos on YouTube.

What he said. Nothing else comes close to performance/cost ratio. Be sure to get the three lamp version, not the cheaper one without lamps. It's available elsewhere, but typically this source is the cheapest.

I use an okdata 3 lamp discharger. It will work with 6S but I have nothing more than 4S. The lamps are 24V. These are cheap and effective. Chargers usually severely limit the discharge power so trying to discharge large packs takes forever. I never use a charger to discharge.
