How fast can you discharge with a charger?

Post subject:  How fast can you discharge with a charger?

I bought the Hota D6 Pro (delivered with the latest SW Ver 1.0.40). So far everything seems to be working fine, but what amazes me is that it only discharges at 0.4A (6S 5500mah 80c). I am aware that he can still discharge faster with an external battery, but unfortunately, I do not have the opportunity.
Is it normal that the discharge rates are so low? With 2S it was a little more (0.6A) but also quite a little. Although I thought the more cells, the faster...
According to the technical data, the D6 Pro should be able to internally up to -3A, which unfortunately it does not reach by far. Is it the same with other chargers? e.g. Toolkit M6DAC or D6+?
How do you do this?

Most chargers have limited discharge capability due to the heat buildup that discharging creates. Toolkit makes dedicated dischargers, but sometimes it's just easier to discharge a battery in the model by running it on the bench for a minute.
