Dakota Lithium 12v 10Ah Battery

(124 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

Excellent quality, great capacity and easy to charge

D. Schultz

Best Value in Lifepo4 batteries. I was missing the charger from my package but they immediately responded and sent it to me. Best value in Lifepo4 batteries.

I bought this battery to run a fat head PDR light. At full brightness this battery will last about 5 1/2 to 6 hours. I dimmed my light slightly and got a full day out of it. I will probably be purchasing the bigger 1 soon. These batteries seem very well made. I was really hoping to find 1 that would run my light over a day. That’s the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.


Work very well. Took it into the BWCA for a depth finder, 4 day trip and still had 50% charge when I got home.

I have purchased 3 and my golf buddy 2. He runs his in parallel as he needs 24V, I only need 12V but like a spare. Third battery purchased for my wife. We use them to power our Bat Caddy electric push carts. Bat Caddy would charge $300-$400 for a lithium battery. Dakota batteries have more than enough power and last for at least 27 holes. I know a lot of golfers at my club who are waiting for their lead batteries to fail so they can buy a Dakota.

Scott Tower

Batteries work as expected. Power is like a fresh battery up until the last 1% of the charge. I have them in an electric scooter and they go full power until about 100ft before they quit. Much lighter than the SLA batteries I had previously.

Dmitri D.

Great! Much lighter than SLA batteries, great capacity and fast charge. And prompt delivery.

Jeffrey Steinke

I have replaced my SLA batteries for my portable Hummingbird Helix 7. What a difference. I now have two 10 AH Dakota’s and I can go 4 days flat out on wilderness camping trips. Beauti!

Eric Stark

Amazingly light weight and holds a great charge. I use mine to power a Lowrance HDS 8 on my kayak and it will last all day!

Mike Rennie

Replaced lead battery in a hi-end hid light. Replaced 7.2 ah battery with 10 ah lithium and doubled the run. Made simple modification so I can recharge with the lithium charger. Works great. Will be buying from them in the future.

William Thrift

Nice and Light, holds it’s charge.

Randall Halm

We use them to power our electric golf push carts…at least 27 holes of power


Bought a streamlight hid light box that had a 7.2ah 12volt lead acid batt. Replaced with a 10 ah. Will also be installing a USB in litbox to charge phone while camping. Lithium battery doubled run time in the lite box. It will never need another.

Excellent product!


Excellent quality.

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.
