Don't bother draining it. There is NO need to do this every time you charge a Ni-Cad. Once every 5-10 charges is fine, or you can get something like the NPT charger from BB bastard and it does just as well. Completely draining a Ni-Cad battery every time you charge it will shorten the life of the battery.*

*Draining from normal use won't hurt, since your AEG won't drain it to dead (0.9v-1.0v per cell). Using a discharger every time WILL hurt it in the long run.
