Built to Last: 11 Year Warranty on Dakota Lithium Batteries


Dakota Lithium LiFePO4 battery collection hero

Here at Dakota Lithium we are taking it up to eleven with a world beating, best in class 11 year warranty on all batteries.

It’s simple. Dakota Lithium batteries are built to last. We stand by our craftsmanship. If we made a mistake in building your battery we’ll fix it or replace it.

Dakota Lithium is now offering an 11 year manufacturers defect warranty for all batteries. Read more about our warranty policy and how to submit a claim here.

In recognition of the customers who have helped Dakota Lithium grow into a leader in energy storage solutions the company is making this warranty retroactive. This 11 year warranty now covers all present, past, and future Dakota Lithium customers.



Dakota Lithium batteries last a long, long time. About 4 – 5 times longer than a lead acid or AGM battery. The average lifespan of a Dakota Lithium Iron Phosphate battery is 2,000 recharge cycles, or roughly 5 – 10 years with regular use. The regular use needs to be appropriate to what the battery is designed for (see the specifications of the battery). This warranty does not cover negligence or misuse of the battery or normal wear and tear. If it is deemed that the battery was used improperly, a customer will be subject to a repair charge plus parts and shipping.

Why eleven years instead of ten? Well, we take pride in putting 110% into every battery we built. So we’re taking this one to eleven.

This year Dakota Lithium celebrated seven years building high quality lithium iron phosphate batteries. As the Chief Technology Officer I review quality concerns closely, and I can say that Dakota Lithium batteries last a long, long time. Many of our first batch of batteries built in 2013 are still on the road or water, powering people’s passions. Knowing how low the failure rate is, and how many improvements we have made over the years that have helped us build better batteries, this warranty made sense.

Dakota Lithium provides customers with a great lifetime value, and the pride of buying a well crafted battery that lasts a long time. I wanted to make that value clear, that you can buy one battery and enjoy both greater performance in the present, and the piece of mind that this lithium battery will last you a long, long time.

– Andrew Jay, Chief Executive Officer, Dakota Lithium

A big thanks goes out to all of our pro staff on Team Dakota Lithium for the battle hardened testing that made this warranty policy possible. And to our community of fans. Thank you for your support!
