# Thread: Max discharge amps for EZ Peak Plus

1. ## Max discharge amps for EZ Peak Plus

I purchased an EZ Peak Plus about a month ago. Overall I like the charger, but I've tried discharging NiMH, LIPO, & Pb batteries of various capacity and voltages and the discharge never draws more than 1.4 amps even when I set it to 2 amps. Any ideas?

2. Discharge Current Range: 0.1–2.0A (10W Max.)
Watts = Amps x Volts
10W = A x 7.4V
A = 10W ÷ 7.4V
A = 1.35± Amps

Therefore, to discharge @ 2A, you would need to be discharging some pack or cell to 5.0 Volts or less. Don't do this with a LiPo unless it is a 1-cell pack.

Thanks. I never knew it was limited to 10W max. That explains it since I tried 6V & 12V Pb and also the 7.4V LIPO.
