Default Charging Optic 6

I have an Optic 6 transmitter and a swallow advance charger and I am wondering why my charger cant cycle my transmitter battery? It charges it fine, but wont discharge it. The charger isnt faulty because it works fine on my receiver batteries. Just wondering what I could do to solve this problem?

Default RE: Charging Optic 6

Many chargers have issue with the diodes placed in the charge circuit of nearly all TX's. The diode prevents power from traveling in the reverse direction and protects the TX’s electronics from reverse polarity mishaps. You'll have to remove the battery from the TX to discharge/cycle it.
