Default DISCHARGING/CYCLING X9303 BATTERY IN TRANSMITTER

I remember a question about being able to discharge/charge(cycle) the battery in the JR X9303 without removing the battery. Can I connect my field charger/discharger to the charge jack on the transmitter and cycle the battery?

I have been following the battery forum a bit and have given my new receiver batteries a full charge/discharge cycle a time or two when they are new. About five months ago I bought the X9303 and had only charged the battery with the wall charger since then. I thought it couldn't hurt to put it on about a .3 or .4 Amp discharge and then give it a slow charge back to full. This would allow me to see how it compares to its rated capacity. I've had no porblems with it. I have other receiver batteries that I periodically(every six months or so) give a dischg/chg cycle and my batteries seem to last quite a while.

I fully discharge and re-charge the batteries in my transmitter every couple of times that I charge the battery. It helps keep them at full capacity longer than just re-charging when needed. Leave it in the transmitter. It won't hurt a thing.
