Play longer with twice the run time for your golf cart or electric vehicle, while lasting 4x longer, providing exceptional lifetime value. Built out of our legendary lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells, this 12V battery requires no maintenance or watering, can be installed in any orientation, and can charge 5X faster then lead acid – giving you more time, and more freedom on and off the green. The best part is a set of Dakota Lithium weighs 1/4 as much as a set of lead acid golf cart batteries, allowing you to cut 300 lbs or more off your cart. Experience better golf cart handling, less wear & tear, and lower maintenance costs. At 16 lbs. this is an ultralight drop in replacement for most golf carts. Easily link in series to create 24V, 36V, or 48V systems. Free 12V 10A LiFePO4 charger included. Backed up by an 11 year warranty.
Designed for high power marine and automotive applications the new DL+ 12V 60Ah battery provides 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps — enough to start your car or boats engine, and more then enough power for most golf carts. Other brands of lithium batteries in the past have had issues with the battery shutting off because the golf cart needed more amps then the battery could provide. By using automotive technology the DL+ line of batteries provides both the high power needed for even the most rugged of golf carts, while also providing 25+ miles of lasting deep cycle performance. This is the most versatile Dakota Lithium battery and includes a terminal adapter kit compatible with most marine, automotive, and deep cycle applications.

STORAGE CAPACITY60 ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 60 amp hours. DL LiFePO4 batteries have a flat voltage curve, which means they have a steady power output as the battery discharges. The power output will not dramatically drop like similar sized SLA batteries. You get all the juice down to the last drop.
VOLTAGE12.8V (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)
ENGINE STARTING POWERRated to 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) of engine starting power. Suitable for marine, automotive, and other applications. 1/4-1/2 the weight of a normal car battery.
SIZE9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.44” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 189 mm) Group 24 equivalent
GROUP SIZE 24Group 24 equivalent for physical dimensions & terminal location. Cranking power (CCA rating) & usable deep cycle capacity is much higher than a lead-acid battery of the same group size.
ENERGY768 Watt-hours (Wh)
TERMINALSF12 terminals (posts that screw in) with M8 size bolts. Includes a terminal adapter kit with automotive & marine posts that screw into the M8 bolt terminal, and M8 brass terminal bolts. Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.) (Max 5 ft. lbs. on terminal post adapters)
TERMINAL LAYOUTThe terminal layout for the first production batch has the positive (+) on the left and the negative (-) on the right. Please check your wiring harness for length to fit both possible wire configurations.
WEIGHT16.5 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery.
LIFECYCLES (BATTERY LIFESPAN)Up to 80% capacity for 2,000 cycles in recommended conditions. The typical SLA has 500 cycles. Dakota Lithium batteries last so long that the price per use is a fraction of traditional batteries.
OPERATING TEMPERATUREIdeal for rugged & harsh environments. Much better than SLA or other lithium batteries. -20’F min, +150’F max optimal operating temps (battery performs well down to -20’F). Avoid charging below 32’F. Discharge cut off at – 20’F / -20’C. Charge cut off at 23’F / – 5’C. BMS high temp cut off at 167’F / 75’C.
DISCHARGE80 A max continuous discharge, 750A max 2 second pulse, 650A max 5 sec pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 50Ah battery.
CHARGERecommend for longest life 60A or less (1C), Max continuous 80A (1.5C). 14.4 V recommended, 15 V max, BMS protection from over charging will cut off at 15V. Included is a free 12V 10 Amp (A) LiFePO4 compatible charger that charges at the recommended 14.4 Volts..
CHARGE VIA ALTERNATORDrop in replacement for lead acid and AGM starter batteries for most mid-sized vehicles. Can be charged by an engine’s alternator at 80 Amps or less. For very large alternators with alternators >100Amps (Diesel trucks, large boat engines) a DC-DC charger is recommended to protect the battery and ensure a longer lifespan.
INCLUDES ACTIVE BMS PROTECTIONContains a high discharge capable circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff (10V) preventing over discharge, high voltage cutoff (15V) preventing over charging, short circuit protection and temperature protection for increased performance and longer life.
COLD TEMPERATURE CHARGING PROTECTIONContains a smart BMS temperature cutoff that prevents charging when cells are below 0’F/C and protects the battery.
CERTIFICATIONSAll DL batteries are UN 38 certified. Dakota Lithium’s cells are UL1642 certified and have been tested per IEC62133 standards. Meets all US & International regulations for air, ground, train, & marine transport.
DUAL PURPOSE USEMulti-purpose use as a deep cycle battery and/or as a starter battery for starting gasoline engines.
