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

Technical support called when I sent them my questions and they were very helpful

Jason mireles

Don’t know about the longevity of the battery yet but ,Powers my fish locator for a day or two and charges fast.


Weight was less then 3 pounds on my digital scale. Took initial charge well and was subjected to a 4 amp load for 20 minutes about 3 hours later. Draw down voltage was to 13.8 volts on my digital multi-meter. This Battery has found a home in my 2 meter emergency radio kit.

Richard Hill

Delivered as expected and on time. The battery is soo light! This 10 AH battery seems half the weight of my 7 AH lead acid battery. The charger charges as expected.

Steven Shively

Excellent battery for its weight and amp hours. Using with a trolling motor for an inflatable kayak. Other battery choices weigh more than my boat. My rating will go to 5 stars if the battery lasts as long as I suspect it will. Got chased off the lake on my maiden voyage by a lightning storm after about 45 minutes of continuous use at low speed. Then made a 20 minute full speed retreat to the dock. If need be will buy a second battery from you and will still be at less than half the weight of conventional batteries. Very pleased so far.

Michael Mulvihill

Perfect size. Have not used it yet. So I hope works as good as it looks

Jim G.

I have been using one of these batteries for the past 3.5 years on a human-powered generator system and have been very pleased with how well it has performed.


Lasted 3 day powering a Lowrance elite 5 ti on my kayak couldn’t have asked for a better battery!! And it weighs next to nothing!!


In one day it was here but than again only live about 400 mile from then. Battery works great was just about fully charged when I received it.

Russell Kucinski

Battery is same size as old lead-acid battery but much lighter. Power seems strong. Think I’m going to like it. I’m powering my fish finder on my kayak with it and use waterproof connections.


My second battery purchase went just as nicely as the first.

Michael Mulvihill

Fish finder battery. What I needed worked great

Douglas Walker

Great product battery was just about fully charged when I received it. Took 20 min to top it off and 3 weeks later just sitting still has the same voltage in it . Would again buy from this Co. Thanks for a great battery.

David Boyles

Awesome little battery powers my fish finder for 3 days on a single charge and it’s super lite!

Clifford Carlburg

I blew out my previous battery and needed replacement. Ordered, received and happy.

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.
