    Question about discharge feature on ez peak plus

    I had a fully charged lipo 2s 30c 5000mah battery. I put it on the discharge option. 2A 6V (2s). I let it go all the way till it said done. Does it shut off when its drained or when it gets to storage levels? It took 119 mins to finish discharging

    After it was done I unplugged it and put in a lipo bag and had to leave the house for a few hours. Will it be OK till tomorrow morning?

    Did you use just discharge or the storage feature?

    If you used the discharge feature you just needlessly cycled the pack and it should be charged back up to storage voltage as soon as possible. The storage feature will automatically choose whether or not the pack needs charged or discharged to reach proper voltage
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Well that stinks. I used just the discharge feature. I won't be home till tomorrow morning. It won't burn up or anything will it? It will be like 15 hours till I'm home again.

    It shouldn't vent out, but depending on how low it is discharged it may self discharge to the point that the pack would need to be replaced.

    I'm OK with that learning error of having to buy a new battery. Stink but what can ya do. I don't want it too catch fire more than anything.

    It should be OK... all depends on what voltage it discharged to. Do you remember?

    Honestly can't remember. Maybe below 2. Not 100% sure. Even if its below that will it catch fire?

    Hopefully you are remembering wrong... cause even if the 2v is a per cell number the pack is already severely over discharged.

    I'm sure I am or at least I hope so. I know for a fact each cell was at 3.85 when I checked the status. Is that what you're asking?

    OK, so I came home and am now charing the battery on the torage charge option. I should be good now right?

    This what the charger is saying right now.


    Here is what it ended with.
