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.

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
