Dakota Lithium 12v 10Ah Battery

(86 reviews)

Built Dakota tough, this 12 volt lithium battery packs a big punch. Engineered with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePo4) technology this battery has twice the power, half the weight, and lasts 4 times longer than a sealed lead acid battery – providing exceptional lifetime value. The #1 battery for fishing electronics, outdoor use, and SLA replacement. Replaces UB1280 battery and many more. LiFePO4 charger recommended.

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
  • Outdoor Adventures

It works. Use in ice fishing flasher and works great- lighter than SLA battery and lasts twice as long.


Batteries charge quickly and seem to last well.


A must have!!! Super small, super lightweight and lasts forever!!! Best purchase I’ve made with top notch customer service!


I have brought in 127 dakota lithiums for fisherman here in Canada. Everyone has been extremely happy with them. Only had one charger go bad, which was quickly replaced. Great customer service.


Unfortunately there aren’t 10 stars cause that is how I would rate this product and the customer service couldn’t be happier with product !!!!!!!


Works great!

Love the weight saving versus standard battery for my ice fishing flasher!!!

Great battery! The run time on my Elite 7Ti tripled from a paltry 4 hrs with the lead acid to 13 hrs with the Dakota Lithium.

I used these batteries to replace 2 12 amp hour lead acid batteries in a mobile chicken coop. Yep, 50 chickens in a coop that rolls around a pasture with a 10 watt solar powered automatic door. The lithiums are much more efficient in a solar application – working fine on partial charge during cloudy weather. Lead acid batteries didn’t last a year with this abuse. Thanks for a great product!

I am a full time, professional fishing guide in Central Texas. I now have six Dakota Lithium 12V 10Ah batteries in service on my 20’9″ center console fishing boat. When I added Garmin LiveScope sonar to my rig, I wanted an independent power source totally separated from my 3 lithium ion trolling motor batteries and my lithium ion cranking battery so as to avoid any kind of electrical interference. I connected 3 sets of 2 batteries each in parallel with one another to create three 12V 20Ah systems. One system powers my bow-mounted Garmin sonar, one system powers my console-mounted Garmin sonar, and one system powers my Garmin transducer. I have a separate Dakota Lithium 12v battery charger running to each battery, and all 6 batteries are encased in a waterproof box I purchased from Academy and then customized to pad the batteries and prevent movement within the box. I’ve been running this system for 7 months now and am very pleased. I’ve never had a single technical issue, and I’ve found that the batteries charge quite quickly.

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.
