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
131 reviews for Dakota Lithium 12v 10Ah Battery

Bought the battery to use on a Helix 7 Portable package. I haven’t used it ice fishing yet, but it was/is fantastic on uncharted fly in lakes. I ran the locator/GPS for 9 hours straight (forgot it turned on during shore lunch) and it took only about 90 minutes to charge to full off a 2000w generator at the end of the day.

The weight reduction is VERY noticeable!!!

If it lasts, I’ll never buy another lead battery.


Fast shipping and battery last for days with no issue,great product


Great battery last for ever it seems, runs my electronics for multiple days without charging

Awesome batteries, incredible run time compared to SLA batteries, fast shipping and exactly as described


Lasts a long time. Customer service at Dakota Lithium is excellent. They got me product extremely fast. When ups lost an order they took care of me instantly even though it wasn’t their error. I will come tinue to buy from Dakota in the future

Operates my flasher all winter for ice fishing and my daughters power wheels jeep all summer. Great batteries!

Greg M

Works great! No more corrosion as seen on lead/acid batteries. Light and safer.

Leonard Wojo

I switched from an alkaline battery to a lithium battery and found it to be a great change. I normally use my battery to power up my electric fishing reel. Not only is it smaller and lighter it seems to last longer then my old alkaline batteries.

Edward Mackey

Long lasting and very light I love them

C Bluso

The battery is awesome it last days without charging I love the battery

John J

Buy it. You won’t be disappointed! I have only used this little guy for about half an hour so far pulling 4 amps. The voltage only dropped about .2V. Very impressed with the weight too. I plan to use this battery as a power supply for a Yaesu 857d portable HAM radio so weight is a factor.

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.
