Please visit https://www.horizonhobby.com/content/spektrum-smart-technology for more information on the Spektrum™ Smart Technology.

Spektrum Smart technology is about offering a higher connection to your hobby. It’s a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment—all the while making vital components of your model easier to use than ever. The combined result is a sense that will make you wish everything about your hobby was “smarter.”

When you’re connected in a way Spektrum Smart technology offers—it’s All Systems Go. That’s how it feels. Components of your RC model talk to each other, connecting you systematically, automatically—responding to you instinctively, as they should be. And the best part? Spektrum users are already a part of evolutionary Spektrum Smart technology, a smarter way to have RC fun that’s just getting started.

LiPo batteries with Spektrum Smart™ technology practically take care of themselves. When combined with a Spektrum™ Smart Battery Charger, the unique parameters, history of the battery and more are all available the instant it’s connected. Charging a Smart Battery is easy as it gets, plus Smart LiPo battery packs are programmable to meet your exact charging needs. But the crowning feature of a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery is that it can be programmed to safely self-discharge to storage condition. That’s a Smart Battery pack!

The Only LiPo Battery You’ll Ever Want!
According to parameters you define, a Smart LiPo battery can automatically discharge to storage condition safely all by itself. It’s a unique innovation that avoids a popular form of performance degradation, promotes longer battery life and better performance over the life of the pack. That’s a VERY Smart Battery!

The Smart Difference.
Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries maintain an error log including the number of over-heat, over-discharge and over-charge incidents which can be helpful data in assuring that the battery you’ve chosen is right for the application. A Smart Battery uploads its charge parameters to a Spektrum Smart Charger automatically making charging as simple as pressing the “start” button. The charge rate of every Smart Battery is customizable, allowing you to take full advantage of packs with faster charge ratings.

It’s a connection that puts you in complete control, makes you more aware and more confident about the capability of your equipment—all the while making your hobby easier. The combined result will make you wish everything about your hobby was “smarter.” Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries are a part of a wide series of Smart technology products now available.

You’ll never have to set charge preferences for a Spektrum Smart battery until you want to. When a Spektrum Smart LiPo battery is connected to a Spektrum Smart charger, unique parameters and health of that Smart LiPo battery upload from the Smart memory microchip integrated into the battery. Through the charger, you can view and set preferences, such as charge rates, so that all you have to do to charge the pack every time is press the charger “start” button. Smart technology takes care of the rest.

A Familiar Connection.
Every Smart LiPo battery is factory assembled with the next-generation IC3™ or IC5™ output connector that’s conveniently compatible with older devices equipped with robust EC3™ and EC5™ connectors. You can use Smart Batteries with older systems, but only when connected to a Spektrum Smart device will all the benefits of Smart technology become obvious.

Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries Store Unique Data, such as:
• Battery Brand
• Battery Type
• Battery Capacity
• Battery C Rating
• Individual Cell Voltage
• Battery Temperature
• Charge/Discharge Cycles

Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries also maintain an error log including the number of over-heat, over-discharge and over-charge incidents which can be helpful data in assuring that the battery you’ve chosen is right for the application. A Smart Battery uploads its charge parameters to a Spektrum Smart Charger automatically making charging as simple as pressing the “start” button.

14 September 2018 | Audi Count Down To e-tron Launch, BMW iX3 Pre Orders and VW Warns Of Higher…



Can YOU help me spread the word about how awesome electric cars are? Click 👉 EVne.ws/patreon

 

Read today’s show notes on https://www.evnewsdaily.com

 

Well good morning, good afternoon and good evening, wherever you are in the world, hello and welcome to the Friday 14th September edition of EV News Daily. It’s Martyn Lee here with the news you need to know about electric cars and the move towards sustainable transport.

 

Thank you to MYEV.com for helping make this show, they’ve built the first marketplace specifically for Electric Vehicles. It’s a totally free marketplace that simplifies the buying and selling process, and help you learn about EVs along the way too.

 

 

ELON TWEETS

“Due to a large increase in vehicle delivery volume in North America, Tesla customers may experience longer response times. Resolving this is our top priority.”

Good news on all fronts, that their hyper-detailed CEO is focussing on Customer Service, and also that must mean he’s not spending 20 hours a day fixing production issues.

 

AUDI WANT YOU TO NOTICE THEIR (CHARGING) SPEED

Fresh from excitement about the Mercedes EQC, which looks incredible, today I want to go big on the Audi e-tron Quattro, a car i’ve raved about for months and now it’s days away, being revealed in San Francisco on Monday 17th September. We know it’s called Quattro, so that’s a dead giveaway to motors on the front and rear axle, for 4 wheel drive. In a previous test we also heard it has a boost mode for up to 8 seconds of full-banzai attack driving. The battery is a 95kWh pack so, on a heavy SUV, any range number over 200 miles in the real world on a cold, wet day would be good. If you’re Audi and you’ve been building your showpiece EV, the e-tron Quattro, it must be a bit annoying to lose out to certain performance specs like the Tesla Model 3 doing 0-60mph in 3.5secs (and quicker if you change the tyres), especially as performance is a pillar of the Audi brand. All we know is the e-tron will get to 60mph in under 6 seconds. There’s a new teaser called “electric has gone thrilling”. But that hasn’t stopped them promoting the speed of their first EV, but specifically the speed it charges. They say its the first series-production car to charge at 150kW. We’ll see the car unveiled next week without the camouflage. In advance of that, Audi announced a scheme for Audi e-tron Quattro owners to access a charging network of 72,000 chargers across Europe, and that includes the network they’re part of which is IONITY. IONITY has big plans for their 350kW chargers with 400 promised by 2020, however the handful out there at the moment are few and far between. The same goes for Electrify America which has a large rollout to do, very quickly, to start installing them in respectable numbers. Audi’s solution also isn’t quite as frictionless as Tesla because you need a special card at launch but they do have plans the fix that. To start with, the access card will handle all the billing across multiple networks, in 16 countries. Audi told us today: “Drivers who charge their e-tron overnight and set off the next morning with a full battery don’t have to worry about stopping at a charging station during their normal daily drive. The range of more than 400 kilometers (248.5 mi) in the realistic WLTP cycle enables electric driving without compromise. For longer distances, Audi offers a smart solution in the shape of the e-tron Charging Service, which handles the charging process swiftly and simply. The e-tron Charging Service builds confidence in our electric initiative. Following on from the Audi e-tron, in 2019 the Audi e-tron Sportback will be the second electric car to go on sale, followed in 2020 by the Audi e-tron GT from Audi Sport.” “From 2019 onward, charging will be even more convenient for Audi customers. This is when the plug & charge function will be introduced. It enables the Audi e-tron to authenticate itself at charging stations via state-of-the-art cryptographic procedures, after which it is authorized – a card will no longer be necessary. All Audi e-tron models rolling off the assembly line from mid-2019 will support this function as standard. Customers can also use plug & charge privately to unlock their connect charging system. This then eliminates the need to enter a PIN to protect against unauthorized use.” “Audi offers various solutions for charging in the garage at home: The standard compact mobile charging system can be used with either a 230 volt household outlet or a 400 volt three-phase outlet. The optional connect charging system doubles the charging power to as much as 22 kW. The second on-board charger required for this will be available as an option at some point in 2019.” My take: for Audi buyers they expect nothing less. No Audi owner wants a wallet full of membership cards or fobs for different networks driving across Europe….

Duracell Rechargeable Ion Speed 4000 Battery Charger 1 Count – unpacking and video review



Duracell Rechargeable Ion Speed 4000 Battery Charger 1 Count – unpacking and video review
Press Subscribe to Semechka TV for more toy videos.
Hi friends. Yeah. This video doesn’t about toys but, very close to such subject. Today, I am gonna show and tell you about Duracell Rechargeable Ion Speed 4000 Battery Charger 1 Count set. The set consists of the eight rechargeable AA batteries, of the four rechargeable AAA batteries and one charge. I have purchased it on the site amazon.com a couple of months ago and waited impatiently. Yes, I could go to the store and buy different types of batteries. But there are some problems. It is difficult to find such the set. And, buy everything separately is a very expensive. Here is my Chinese charger. It looks sad. It is the second in a row already. I’d like to just dispose of it. Look what it is like … it’s trash. Here are Chinese batteries. You see, the figures are 2700, 2100 here. They say us about the high level of them capacity. But here I was cheated by the cunning Chinese manufacturers. In fact, multiple tests such batteries showed that they have been able to give only 1000 instead of 2700 or 2100. That’s why these batteries are problematic. Just put them in the camera, and 5 minutes later, it will warn about the low battery. In general, you have to understand how much it’s annoying. Unlike them, the batteries Duracell have a capacity as specified by the manufacturer. Besides, here,
http://goo.gl/v0eQZ4
where I bought my kit, score based on reviews has been 5 stars. This means that the product is qualitative. This is not advertising, so as I don’t get the money for it. Just I did it easier for you. That is, in fact, we have a Japanese capacity in 2400, which is almost 2.5 times more than a Chinese capacity in 1000.
