    I dunno a thing about them. But I've been using battery warmers for years. (See also, "pockets")

    Its probably a setting to power an actual battery warmer (its a real thing, batteries all work better warm) from the charger. Like some chargers have a function to power a tire lathe. Not sure though. I cant see how it could be good for the packs to be warmed from the inside by a charge/discharge process.
