Spektrum is expanding its own Smart Technology LiPo Battery Lineup that debuted last year. When a Smart 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.
The new Spektrum Smart 100C LiPos come in a variety of popular sizes and are ready to drop into your RC aircraft for maximum performance, power, and reliability.
The Spektrum Smart LiPo Batteries store unique data such as: Brand, Type, Capacity, C Rating, Individual Cell Voltage, battery’s Temperature and Charge/Discharge Cycles. These 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.
