Greatest Lifetime Value


11 year warranty

World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.


5.94"x 2.55"x 3.78" (151x65x96mm). Replaces UB1280 battery and many others.


2lbs 12oz (1.24Kg). That's 60% lighter then a SLA battery.


10 ampere hours. Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 10 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.

Lifecycles (battery lifespan)

Up to 80% capacity for 2,000 cycles in recommended conditions. The typical SLA has 400 cycles. Dakota Lithium batteries last so long that the price per use is a fraction of traditional batteries.

Operating temperature

Ideal for rugged & harsh environments. Much better than SLA or other lithium’s. -20'F min, +120'F max optimal environmental operating temps


Standard F2 terminals (6.35mm or 0.25" wide)


20 A max continuous, 50 A max 300 mS pulse. 9.0 V max discharge, 11.0 V max recommended discharge. For longest lifetime recommended discharge rate 1-5 Amps. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 10Ah battery.


10 A max, 14 V max recommended, 15 V max. Please note: this battery should be charged using a LiFePO4 compatible charger. A SLA charger may work, but will reduce performance and lifespan of the battery.

Includes active BMS protection

Contains a circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff, high voltage cutoff, short circuit protection and temperature protection for increased performance and longer life.

Charger Sold Separately

This battery should be charged using a LiFePO4 compatible charger. A SLA charger may work, but will reduce performance and lifespan of the battery.

Suitable for:

  • Fish Finders, Flashers, & Boating Electronics
  • Ice Fishing
  • LiFePO4 Replacement for SLA 12v
  • Electric Vehicle Starter Battery
  • Industrial Batteries
  • Scooter Batteries
  • Solar Lighting
  • Robotics

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.

Absolutely amazing product. My ice fishing gear is lighter and runs longer. Don’t ever worry about or wonder if your batter will last all day. So glad I invested in these batteries!


Long lasting and much lighter, I bought 2

Great service and product. However I wish you would make mention that a customer may have to add new connectors to their current fish finder to hook to terminals. I had to clip wires and add larger connectors for my Vexilar.

I have used it only once since I purchased it. The battery display on my helix hasn’t moved off of 100% charged!!! The battery that came with the unit lasted only a few hours! Great product!!

I bought this battery for my Marcum LX5 flasher after fishing 10 hours and my lead acid battery went dead on me right before prime time bite. Well I have since had a chance to test it out in a local fishing contest called Battle on Bago. I went out for the second day of the tournament and started fishing about 6am and since the contest ended at 2pm I packed up to go enter my catch. The following day I was cleaning my truck out about 12pm and picked up my flasher to find I had accidentally left it running the entire time 30hrs strait and still running strong!

My Helix Ice 7 would fly through the original battery. After getting the Dakota it ran all day with no drain at all.

I went from 2 7ah SLA batteries to 1 Dakota 10ah. Cut my weight by 2/3.


That’s 1 bad ass battery. i bought bigger than I needed, I used it just to run a little garmin striker 4 plus. I used it for the first time, ran the striker for 9 hours straight with the backlight all the way up. I dont know how much it drained, but I know it only took 30 minutes to recharge what I used lol. I’d say this battery could last me 2 outings atleast.

I bought this battery to use with my ice fishing locator. I’m totally happy with the performance. The battery has more endurance than I do and I haven’t yet run out of power while fishing. Should last a lot longer than my old battery, as well.
