What is everyone using to discharge there batteries to the proper long term storage voltage?

Also are you using this same thing to bring the battery to the deep cycle voltage after 20 flights like DJI recommends?

Are these any good to use for this ?:

I only charge my batteries when I'm going to use them (or if they get too low in storage). If I charge them and don't use them (doesn't happen often), I let them auto discharge down to the storage level.

DJI batteries do not need to be deep cycled. You can safely ignore any recommendations to do so.

Your batteries will self-discharge to storage level all by themselves.
You can set the time to discharge in the app settings.

Since the batteries do it for you, paying for a device to do it would be a waste of money.

I am using the general science of batteries. I keep them in use and wont let them stay unused for days.
