The Spektrum Smart S1500 DC LiPo Smart Charger is perfect for large batteries that require large amounts of charging power. 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.


  • 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
Note: This charger supports IC5 batteries, but does not include the IC5 lead. The IC5 connector (SPMXCA507) is sold separately.

Spektrum RC S1500 DC LiPo Smart Charger (20A/500W)
I was sent two used chargers. Both lCD screens are scratched/finger prints. The second one is scratched and has a Gouge in the screen as if a tool hit it. I bought Spektrum DC power supply a month ago...still unopened, waiting for DC chargers to come back in stock.... and on back order again!....I received an email apologizing and send the product back. So now what do I do?... now I have two brand new 6s 100s Spektrum lipo $300+$, Arrma EXB, 6s Notorious sitting in their boxes with no DC chargers. To top it off I ordered the wrong charge leads for the chargers (my fault,but still Aggravated)
