Greatest Lifetime Value


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 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

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.

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.

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.

What a battery! I had been using a 7AH lead acid battery with my Humminbird Helix 7. With the backlight setting on 5 I would get about 5 hours of runtime. With the Dakota Lithium the backlight setting is on 8 and I got more than 11 hours.

I purchased one 10Ah battery from Dakota last fall and ran a Lowrance Ti 9 on it in addition to other electrical items. It lasted longer than any battery I ever had since starting kayak fishing 6 years ago. To extend me into more than one day of usage, I purchased another and wired them together in parallel. A single 10Ah could have handled what I needed it for but with two now I know I will never be short of power. Great product Dakota, thanks.
