Spektrum has just announced their “Smart Technology” line of equipment. This new tech will work across all RC platforms where LiPo batteries are used; cars, trucks, drones and other aircraft.
While not new, it does elevate the ease of use for new hobbyists, allowing a very simple and pain-free way of charging your batteries. The new chargers (Spektrum Smart S1200 DC and Spektrum Smart S2100 AC) have leads that use integrated pins that allow them to monitor the batteries condition; no more optional balance boards to mess with. The new Smart Tech batteries also include an internal board that will, after a certain time period, perform a self-balance/ automatic storage discharge if the charge in the pack is too high.
Check out Horizon’s video explaining all this new super-cool tech!
