Spektrum 22.2V 3200mAh 6S 30C Smart G2 LiPo Battery: IC5
- Spektrum 22.2V 3200mAh 6S 30C Smart G2 LiPo Battery: IC5Pilots and drivers reap the smart benefits of using Spektrum ™ Smart G2 30C LiPo Batteries. New "Generation 2" functions make these LiPo packs even easier and safer to use in conjunction with your smart charger.
For example, the Spektrum ™ Smart G2 technology makes it much easier to charge your LiPo batteries. The exchange of information takes place over a single wire in the innovative IC3 ® or IC5 ® connector of each Smart G2 battery. This means that only a single connection is required and the balancer cable is no longer required.
Smart G2 batteries are factory programmed to automatically discharge to a safe storage voltage of 3.90V after 72 hours of inactivity. The benefits are longer battery life, better performance over the life of the pack, and peace of mind knowing your smart battery is maintenance-free. You can change the settings for the automatic battery discharge according to your own requirements at any time. G2 batteries also offer a discharge rate to storage voltage that is three times faster than previous G1 smart batteries.
Smart G2 30C soft case LiPo packs feature thicker internal metal side plates. These panels improve heat dissipation and provide more protection for the cells against damage from harder landings or other high impact situations.
As with other smart batteries, you only have to change the charging setting if you really want to. When a Smart G2 LiPo battery is connected to a Spektrum ™ Smart Charger, its specific charge parameters and state of health are transferred from the battery's onboard memory microchip to the charger. You can read and define settings such as charging rates on the charger. All you have to do to charge the battery is connect it to the smart charger and the smart technology will do the rest.
Spektrum ™ Smart G2 30C LiPo Batteries store a variety of important information including:
- battery brand
- battery type
- battery capacity
- battery discharge rate
- Individual cell voltage
- battery temperature
- charge/discharge cycles
Spektrum ™ Smart G2 LiPo 30C batteries also maintain an error log including counts of overheat, overdischarge, and overcharge events. This data can be helpful to ensure that the battery pack is also suitable for the selected area of application. The innovative Spektrum ™ Smart G2 LiPo 30C batteries are so easy to use that they almost take care of themselves. With Smart G2 technology, it's easy to get the best performance, reliability and longevity from your G2 batteries.
Note: G2 batteries require the use of a Spektrum ™ G2 Smart Charger or Smart Charger with G2 Update (Available at spektrarc.com).

- Thicker internal metal side plates protect cells and improve heat dissipation
- Integrated microchip stores unique parameters for each battery
- IC3 ® and IC5 ® connectors are also compatible with EC3 ™ and EC5 ™ styles
- Spektrum ™ G2 Smart Charger required (or earlier Smart Charger with G2 update, available at pektrrc.com)
Smart Battery Technology - One Smart Connection
When a G2 battery pack is connected to a Spektrum ™ Smart Charger, the specific parameters, condition and balance information is automatically transferred from the memory microchip to the charger via the IC3 ® or IC5 ® connector. To charge and balance the pack, simply connect it to your smart charger. Safe charging starts automatically and no separate balance port is required.
Rich in data
An integrated microchip allows each Smart G2 battery to store important information such as battery brand, battery type, cell count, capacity, number of charge cycles, number of discharges, discharge rate, battery temperature and internal resistance. In addition, each battery keeps a log of unhealthy events such as overcharge, overdischarge, and overtemperature. This means you always make the most informed and best decision when choosing your battery in preparation for a flight or run.
Automatic smart discharge to storage voltage
Spektrum ™ Smart G2 batteries are virtually self-care. G2 batteries are factory programmed to automatically discharge to a safe storage voltage of 3.90V per cell after 72 hours of inactivity. This gives you longer battery life and better performance over the life of the pack, and you get peace of mind knowing your smart battery is maintenance-free. The settings for automatic discharge to storage voltage can be changed at any time by the user according to their own requirements.
Easy and fast
Preset charge, discharge and storage parameters are automatically transmitted from your Spektrum ™ Smart G2 battery to your smart charger. This makes charging as easy as plugging in the pack. The charge rate of individual batteries can also be customized by the user to take full advantage of packs with higher charge rates. The battery's built-in microchip remembers the last charge rate you set, and that setting takes effect automatically the next time you plug it in.
IC3 ® and IC5 ® connectors
The innovative smart connection is made possible by a microchip built into each battery, which transmits the battery's unique information via a data cable at the IC connector. Spectrum ™ Smart IC3 ® and IC5 ® connectors are designed from the ground up to provide a stronger connection, higher thermal resistance and hassle-free installation. IC connectors are also backward compatible with EC connectors so you can use smart batteries with older systems. However, Smart G2 batteries can only be charged with Smart chargers.
