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.

The Spektrum™ Micro 4 Smart charger is a 4-port tool for the RC pilot who wants the ultimate in 1S LiPo battery charging. Featuring Spektrum Smart Charging technology, its digital LED status screen delivers vital battery information in a clear manner the instant you connect. Its compact all-in-one design incredibly offers four independent charging channels, each with enough built-in connectors so that charging multiple 1S batteries with the highest level of precision is easy.
Each of the four charging channels is built-in with independent circuitry to enhance charge precision and efficiency. Vivid LED status lighting includes individual 4-digit displays and multi-color LEDs so you can instantly see the charge phase and battery condition. The simple press-dial interface allows you to finely tune the charge rates from 0.05 to 1.2A making it possible to fast-charge most high rated batteries. Exclusive software detects LiPo and LiHV 1S batteries automatically and combines with Spektrum Smart Charging technology so your batteries get maximum protection against short circuit, over current, reverse polarity and input voltage errors.
The Micro 4 AC/DC system works when connected to a standard wall outlet or you can even take the Micro 4 charger on the go. Unlike charging multiple 1S batteries in parallel, each battery is individually recognized. As a result, you can charge individual 1S batteries with the precision of much more expensive charge units and possibly extend the life of all of your 1S batteries.

Four Precision Charge Ports
Four individual charge circuits and four separate charge ports make it possible to charge multiple 1S packs with precision. Choose the exact charge rate you need from 0.05 to 1.2 amps using the individual dials that combine with a 4-digit display and a multi-color status LED system so you can keep a fleet of batteries working hard for you.
Easy to Use
Simply connect your 1S battery into one of the charge ports and the Micro 4 instantly displays battery voltage. The Micro 4 conveniently powers from a standard 120V wall outlet or remote power source. Its pushbutton dial keeps programming all four charge ports simple while the LED displays clearly show charge status, rate, voltage and more.
Each of the four ports features four connector types to select from so there are no cumbersome adapters to untangle. Lightweight and small in size makes it even easier to stash into a backpack and take anywhere.
