I have a number of 36V Nimh and Lipo packs that I sometimes want to discharge for various reasons -- to cycle, measure output with a Drain Brain etc. I am about to hook up banks of 12V auto tail light bulbs 10P, 3S and in series with the DB which I think should work. I know that each 10 bulb parallel string can take at least 7V 35A from RC discharging. I'm checking to see if I'm off base or if anyone knows any better ways. No, I don't want to run my bike with the wheel off the ground -- I don't think that is better than a bulb discharger.
I plan to use three of these in series. I don't want to blow them up
as they are $45 each!
I see the thread on discharging but it seems to refer to only 12V SLA -- Thus this inquiry.
Thanks for any idears guys,
PS -- Boy, that thread on discharging got into motor/battery/power/PM theory and got my brain spinning faster than a Hammond Organ Leslie speaker on a Doors keyboard. I got down right cornfused! ~^^ * ~` BuRp BlInK
-- Now back to my question please.
