    I know, I know... but...
    What is the fastest way to discharge the battery?
    Preferably without human intervention.

    Download Adobe Flash and go to a flash powered website. also turn on wifi but don't connect.

    Also set the screen timeout to never.

    Just curious. Why do you want to do that? We always learn something new.

    I want to recalibrate the battery. For this I need to discharge and fully charge it a couple of times.

    I don't have time/patience to wait till it discharges from normal use...

    Thanks for clarifying. Yes, I have done that to my laptop battery but not for my cell. Cool.

    I use strobe when I want to discharge it. Just turn up the screen brightness all the way, and keep the screen from timing out. Couldn't hurt to turn on gps/nav in the background, and make sure wifi and BT are on, but not connected. Absolute quickest way is to do all of the above while driving around...you use ALOT of juice connecting to new towers every 2 minutes.
