Smart Technology Overview

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."

For all radio control hobbyists that are looking for a better way to charge batteries, Spektrum Smart Chargers and Smart Batteries combine for an intuitive charging experience that results in a simple, connected, and safer charging experience. Spektrum Smart Charging virtually eliminates the hassle from charging your LiPo batteries. This is made possible by an integrated microchip on each Smart battery that communicates with your Smart charger to automatically determine the best charging settings. Plug it in, and just press start. While all hobbyists will enjoy this simple experience, advanced hobbyists can take advantage of unique data such as cycle count, unhealthy activity like overcharge and discharge, battery temperature, C rating and much more, all saved within each battery. Additionally, automatic discharge to storage ensures a better, and healthier, lifespan for your batteries.


  • High 500W output quickly charges large, high-capacity and high cell count batteries with ease
  • Ideal for use with Spektrum™ Smart batteries featuring the IC3™ or IC5™ connector
  • Smart Technology recognizes unique Smart battery data for safe, convenient charging
  • Can also be used to charge batteries without Smart Technology
  • Enhanced touch wheel interface improves setup ease and precision
  • 2.4-inch LCD screen with auto-brightness is easy to read even in extreme sunlight
  • Compact design with rounded edge fits in a bag or pocket for easy carrying
  • Internal cooling fan maintains a safe, efficient operating temperature


If you use large batteries that require high charging power, the 500W Spektrum™ S1500 DC Smart Charger is up to the challenge. Compact enough to carry in a pocket or field bag, the S1500 easily goes with you to the field, track, or any place where you need to charge your LiPo and NiMH batteries.

The S1500 charger's improved, extra-precise scroll wheel interface simplifies setup. When used with Spektrum Smart LiPo batteries having IC3™ or IC5™ connectors, the S1500 also uploads specific parameters and health data from the battery's integrated memory chip and displays it on the bright LCD screen for review — giving you the information you need to evaluate your packs and make the best charging decisions.

For input power, use a Spektrum Power Supply unit (SPMXC10201, available separately) or any compatible DC power source with the included IC3 power cable adapter. The S1500 charger has a USB port, a software update port, plus a safety timer and protection against heat, reverse polarity, short circuit, over-current, and low input voltage.
