discharging NiCad batteries

Discussion in 'General Electronics' started by KellyClarksonTV, Jun 28, 2004.

  1. Is there a way to discharge a NiCad cell faster than it would be to just short
    circuit it, and without the risk of possibly reverse charging it?

    Thanks.

    Even a "mere" short will damage the battery, and it might get hot
    enough to cause other damage.
    Go back to the NitroGlycerine that i recommended.
