Twice the Power
of Traditional Batteries
Half the Weight
Charges 5 X Faster
Lasts 4X as long
Greatest Lifetime Value



5.94"x 2.55"x 3.74" (151x65x95mm). Replaces UB1280 battery and many others.


2lbs 14oz (1.30Kg). 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
  • Hiking
  • Camping
  • Remote Power

surprise…actually delivers as advertised. I concur with the tester that did a drain down test to this battery. I was very surprised to find a capacity of over 10AH on two tests with a remarkably high efficiency of recharge as previously reported. I stopped at 10.1AH since the voltage dropped to 10.2 volts under load at 4.6A drain and I did not want to excessively drain the battery. I bought the battery as a standby electric outboard battery in a sailboat. The LIPO4 has a great storage life as compared to lead acid as long as it is stored without a full charge. I will report back later on how it works out. So far I am impressed. Vastly exceeded my expectations. I used a rather sophisticated test setup that is capable of measuring amp-hours.

super light for application, battery tested out of the box w/ a charge 14.73v

Nice light SLA battery equivalence. Fits great in my fish flashers.


Great Batteries and Great service!!! I’ve been using 4 of these for a aeration system in a pond running on solar. Flawless is a understatement. I have turned several people on to these. This is really a great deal for a great battery!!!!


This battery far exceeds my expectations. It is light and very powerful. It charges quickly, and runs my Garmin EchoMap Chirp 73CV all day. I plan on getting a couple more to put into my Marcum LX7 and VX1i for this winter

Awesome price and really good batteries. Thank you.


Super fast and effortless shopping with Dakota Lithium. I will definitely do business again. Thank you!


This battery is Amazing!!!

satisfied user!

I bought two for eZip 500 scooter. Scooter’s charger is designed for SLA batteries (2 12-volt batteries wired in series, 24-volt charger system plugs into the scooter), but since these have BMS that allows SLA charger to be used, I thought they would work. Charge and run fine in my two weeks of testing. Definitely more total energy capacity than the SLA (more runtime), but no more power for the uphill climbing. Overall a decent choice even if a bit more pricey than the SLA. I am expecting them to last much longer than SLA, but only time will tell if that is true.


I have not used them yet but I am still giving 5 star just based on my research and reputation of this battery

Running a 27 watt LED headlight on my MB. 8 to 9 hours of runtime. 4 to 5 hours recharge with CR supplied charger. Very pleased with performance.

WOW! Lets me just say WOW! I have been using electronics on my kayak for 6 years now. Started with the simple 4 in Garmin, then a 5 inch, and now a 9inch Garmin 93sv, side scan, gps, down scan and sonar. Needless to say, the bigger the unit the more battery I needed. Used a 12v game feeder battery for a long time, but as the units grew, the battery wasn’t strong enough. I upgraded to a 14AH Duracell, but it was so heavy and also barley made it through the day. I finally decided to try a Dakota Lithium 10AH. I cant explain how pleased I am. It runs my unit for at least 2 full fishing days on the water. It may go more, but I have not let it run dead yet. Not only that, but it is at least half the weight of a standard game feeder battery, If you fish as serious as me, 30-40 tournaments a year, any weight you can shave off the kayak helps!! Also, knowing I don’t have to worry, in hour 9, about my unit going dead is such a stress relief. Upgrading to this battery is the best upgrade I have made in a while!! Super pleased.

Happy owner of two Dakota Lithium batteries. I’ve used two Dakota Lithium 10ah battery for two years now. In the winter in my ice fishing electronics, and in the summer to power my kayak electronics. For those that ice fish, and stay very mobile, hole hopping with their electronics, this battery can’t be beat. Half the weigh of a 7ah SLA, and much better performance. I no longer need to worry about the life of my flasher through a day. My LX7 will run at full brightness from sunrise to sunset, and still have enough to fish several hours into the night. In addition to their great product, Dakota Lithium has graciously assisted me in sponsorship for an ice fishing tournament that I direct. They have been nothing but helpful with any concerns or issue with their product, and I will continue to support them in the future with my battery needs.

Dakota lithium’s simply the best !! Hello everyone I am writing this review from my own experience with Dakota lithium batteries. I am an avid Ice fisherman as well as an open water fisherman. I have been using Dakota lithium 10ah batteries for a year now . I can’t stress enough the weight difference and run time of these lithium batteries compared to the traditional 7ah lead acid batteries. I use these batteries in my flashers also in my power boxes. Here’s an example of the amazing run time I personally got with one 10ah Dakota in my power box. I literally used every function on my power box for 5 days straight without a charge . Function’s on my power box (Bluetooth speakers,usb ports ,12v charging port,glow cup, two power posts,12v led lights ) Thank you Jack Kwiatek

Dakota Lithium Batteries are a cost effective solution for power on the go. I struggled to find the right battery to run a 7″ & 9″ Lowrance fish finder on my kayak that wouldn’t “sink the boat”. Dakotas batteries are a fraction of the weight of traditional SLA batteries and give me the power I need full a full day of fishing and then some…

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.
