Discharging is the opposite of charging.

When you charge some electric component, such as a battery, you are storing potential electric energy in it.

When you discharge that battery, you are reversing the charging process and using the potential electric energy to drive other electric components.

Don't be scared, most of the time you are discharging your battery.

Any electronic device must be powered somehow.

In case the device is not attached to an AC line,a charger, a powerbank or other external source, it draws needed energy from the device battery. This state is called battery discharging, as the opposite to battery charging. The discharging current depends on power consumption of the device.

It is the same process if you power a flashlight, an MP3player or a camera by the included battery.
