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 500 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 operating temps (battery performs well down to -20'F). Avoid charging below 32'F.


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 high temperature protection for increased performance and longer life.


All batteries are UN 38 certified. Dakota Lithium's cells are UL1642 certified and have been tested per IEC62133 standards. Meets all US & International regulations for air, ground, and train transport.

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

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.

Expensive But Powerful and Lightweight. So far, so good. Most expensive battery I ever bought, but is light weight and seems to offer a lot of reserve power.

Fast shipping and great communication thank you

I expect to give this 5 stars after I use this battery in my intended application for an emergency ham radio station. I chose a LiFeO4 battery design since this is the safest chemistry of the lithium battery types. This is a powerful battery and I wouldn’t want self induced battery issues with this much potential energy available. The LiFeO4 chemistry battery is much more tolerant of misuse or the potential for self induced fires and is much safer than LiPo chemistry. The LiFeO4 chemistry is much more expensive but worth it to me. Also this chemistry can generally be safely charged with a charger designed for gelled lead acid battery types and the cell matching and equalization is much better than other types. Sealed into a tough case this battery is not subject to handling damage like many of the LiPo batteries that simply put a thin sleeve or shrink wrap over the cells. Such batteries must be handled carefully otherwise any incidental damage can invite risk of fire. This battery has a very substantial casing that will withstand rough handling very well.


Excellent battery.. Very light..well worth the money..great power.


Brought life back to my UPS battery backup for my computer. The max 20A draw reduces my UPS max load from 600W to ~450 w, but that’s fine for my use. Returned my runtime to about an hour from the 5 minutes my old batteries were down to. The UPS is still bad at estimating time left because the voltage curve isn’t what it expects. So after 20 minutes of predicted runtime, I get another 40 minutes+ while the UPS says 0 minutes remaining. If it all lasts 10 years, it’ll be money well spent.

Much lighter than SLA and lasts longer too

Works great in my Marcum LX6! Long life over the lead battery.

Perfect Transaction!!!!!!!!! Fast shipping!!!!!!Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Love these Batteries! This is my third battery purchase. Used 2 for a 24V scooter, now added a 3rd for a 36v ebike wheel. These things are such an improvement over SLAs! Carrying around 25 lbs of SLAs makes NO sense. At less than 10 lbs for 3 of these the bike feels so much better and if they truly are good for 2000 charges they will save money in the long run. My range is great now and I usually arrive back home with 3 battery indicator lights still lit!! Love them! Dakota Lithium has great customer service if you need them.
