    I got this one today, but it does not tell me how long the lights will stay on the discharge mode. It has been over an hr and it still showing 4 leds still. Just trying to bring it down to 50%. Anyone please.

    Thanks

    It'll most likely take a few hours to discharge from 100%. Why not just let the batteries auto discharge down to 65% on their own?

    Thanks msinger. I guess just wanted to see how my $90 discharges as well:) I guess I will give it time and let you know tomorrow.

    If I need to discharge a battery I just play with the simulator for awhile.

    Well I am back home and now I have 2 solid leds and the 3rd one blinking. So I guess this is a 24hr deal or I blew 90.00 lol

    I do have a total of 4 batteries. I was thinking if I discharged it the proper way, they would last a longer life.

    So anyone has a clue as to the life of a battery being recharged? Anytyone know a number of? I sure that singer knows the answer.

    Thanks

    Well singer, the discharge is ok if you have all the time in the world to play. But is took 23 hrs to discharge one battery to 65%. As far as charging,it does great.
    So I guess I will hang to it.

    Thanks again

    Yes, I really like my charging hub too. It's very convenient when charging everything up the night before I fly.
