11 year warranty

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


5.94"L x 2.55"W x 3.78"H (151mm x 65mm x 96mm) Replaces UB1280 battery


2 lbs 12.32 oz (1.25 Kg). 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 5,000 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)


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


10A max, 14.4V recommended, 15V 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 UN38 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.

ISO 9001:2015

Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.

Charger Sold Separately

This battery should be charged using a LiFePO4 compatible charger. Dakota Lithium 12V batteries should be charged at 14.4 volts, higher than AGM or lead acid. Lead acid chargers will work, but will only charge the battery to 80% of capacity.

Suitable for:

  • Fish Finders, Flashers, & Boating Electronics
  • Ice Fishing
  • LiFePO4 Replacement for SLA 12v
  • Electric Vehicle Accessory 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. 5,000+ recharge cycles (roughly 10 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.

Bought this battery to power my new hummingbird ice helix 5. Very impressed with the battery holding a charge10 times longer than the standard 9v battery and half the weight.

Outstanding ! Powerful and light ! Perfect for powering My Helix 7 Kayak install !


Just what I needed for my camping trip

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.

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!
