What Battery Do I Need for My Ham Radio?

Dakota Lithium batteries are drop in replacements for sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries. That means, if your backup power system uses a SLA or any 12V battery, you can replace it with a Dakota Lithium. You will get double the run time and broadcast time of lead acid by upgrading to Dakota Lithium.

For most radio operators we recommend a Dakota Lithium 10 amp hour (Ah) battery or a Powerbox 10 paired with a small solar panel to create a lightweight, off the grid solution.

For radio operators looking to operate multiple devices, or who broadcast off-grid, or who may operate in disaster and emergency response situations we recommend the Dakota Lithium Powerbox+ 60. This fully waterproof and submersible battery floats in both salt and fresh water, can power both 12V DC devices and 110V AC devices like laptops, monitors, refrigerators and TVs, and is versatile, allowing you to power your radio when in the field and your home electronics anywhere. Plus, the added ability to jump start a car, truck, or boat engine in an emergency gives peace of mind on remote expeditions or late night adventures.

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL 10 Ah battery is built with Dakota Lithium's legendary LiFePO4 cells. 2,000+ recharge cycles (roughly 5 year lifespan at daily use) vs. 500 for other lithium batteries or lead acid. Optimal performance down to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit (for winter warriors). Plus twice the power of lead-acid batteries at half the weight.
