When charging a Spektrum Smart Battery, the battery parameters are set automatically and the charger will begin charging automatically when the battery is connected to the charger. Charge rate of individual batteries can be user-customized, allowing you to take full advantage of packs with faster charge ratings. The integrated microchip on each battery will remember the last charging rate you set, so the next time you plug it in, these settings will automatically populate.
The innovative Smart connection is made possible by an installed microchip on every battery, feeding the unique information through a data cable to the IC3 and IC5 connectors. The IC series of connectors are designed from the ground up to provide a more solid connection, higher heat resistance, and effortless installation. Sprung bullets ensure a solid connection that is easy to connect and disconnect, while the convenient solder pads allow for easy installation on your device.
For those using the popular EC3 and EC5 connectors, theres no need to worry. The IC connector series is entirely backwards compatible with existing connectors so you can use your Smart Charger with older batteries, but only when connected to a Spektrum Smart Battery are all the benefits of Smart technology obvious.
