Pilots enjoy even more Smart advantages when using Spektrum™
Smart G2 100C LiPo batteries to power their planes and helis. New
"Generation 2" features make these LiPo packs — featuring a 100C
continuous discharge rating for high performance and longevity — even
simpler and safer to use together with your Smart charger.
For example, Spektrum™ Smart G2 technology makes it much
easier to balance charge your LiPo batteries. Balancing information
travels through the unique data wire of each Smart G2 battery's
innovative IC3® or IC5® connector. As a result, only a single connection is needed — no separate balance lead is required.
Smart G2 batteries come from the factory programmed to discharge
automatically to a safe storage voltage of 3.90V after 72 hours of
inactivity. The benefits include longer battery life, better performance
over the life of the pack, and the peace of mind that comes from
knowing your Smart battery is maintenance-free. You can change the
battery's Auto Storage settings based on your own preferences. G2
batteries also offer a storage discharge rate that's three times faster
than the previous G1 Smart batteries.
Smart G2 100C soft-case LiPo packs also include thicker internal
metal side plates. These plates improve heat dissipation and provide
more protection for the cells against punctures during rough landings or
in similar impact-prone situations.
As with other Smart batteries, you'll never have to set your own charging preferences for a Spektrum™ Smart G2 battery until you want to. When a Smart G2 LiPo battery is connected to a Spektrum™
Smart charger, its unique charging parameters and health information
upload to the charger from the battery's integrated memory microchip.
Through the charger you can view and set preferences such as charge
rates, so all that's required to charge the pack is connecting it to
your Smart charger. Smart technology takes care of the rest.
Spektrum™ Smart G2 100C LiPo batteries store a wide variety of essential information, including:
Spektrum™ Smart G2 LiPo 100C batteries also maintain an
error log including the number of over-heat, over-discharge and
over-charge incidents. This data can be helpful in assuring that the
battery you've chosen is right for the application. Innovative Spektrum™
Smart G2 LiPo 100C batteries are so easy to use, they nearly take care
of themselves. It's easy to achieve peak battery performance,
reliability and longevity with Smart G2 technology!
Note: G2 batteries require the use of a Spektrum™ G2 Smart Charger or earlier Smart Charger with G2 update.
