Specifications

11 Year Warranty

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

Capacity

23 ampere hours. Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 23 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.

Voltage

12.8V

Energy

295 Watts

Terminals

M6 terminals (posts that screw in). When used in salt water environments we recommend applying a small amount of dielectric grease on the threads of each terminal. It helps extend the lifespan.

Size

7.125 in (181mm) L x 3.03 in (77mm) W x 6.57 in (167mm) H

Weight

6.4 lbs (2.9Kg). That's 60% lighter than a SLA battery.

Lifecycles (battery lifespan)

Up to 80% capacity for 2,000 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.

Discharge

24 A max continuous, 60 A max pulse (<3 sec). The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 23Ah battery. Please note: a single battery is only appropriate for trolling motors with <20 lbs of thrust. For trolling motors with 20 to 45lbs of thrust a single DL 54Ah battery is required. Or you can combine two batteries in parallel to create a 48 amp continuous discharge rate and 46 Ah of capacity. This provides the amps necessary to run the larger motor, increases runtime and lifespan of the battery.

Charge

12 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 high 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.

Drop in Replacement

Replaces size UB12180, size FM12180, and size 6fm18 SLA batteries with twice the run time and half the weight

Suitable for:

  • Fish Finders, Flashers, & Boating Electronics
  • Garmin Fish Finders
  • Ice Fishing
  • LiFePO4 Replacement for SLA 12v
  • Industrial Batteries
  • Solar Lighting
  • Robotics
  • Hiking
  • Camping
  • Remote Power
  • Outdoor Adventures

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL 23Ah battery is built with Dakota Lithium's legendary LiFePO4 cells. 2,000+ recharge cycles (roughly 5 year lifespan at daily use) vs. 500 for lead acid or AGM. Optimal performance down to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit (for winter warriors). Plus twice the power of lead-acid batteries at half the weight.

I plan on using this battery in my kayak to power my trolling motor. So I ran a simple test. I powered the trolling motor with the battery after giving it a full charge. With the trolling motor suspended from a beam in my shed and the prop just spinning in air, I set the speed to the highest setting and let the motor run for 5 straight hours. Ambient temperature was about 35 deg. F. At the end of the test battery voltage was still around 13 vdc as measured by my hand held multimeter. It then took only 4.5 hrs. to fully recharge the battery. I am happy as a clam !!! Lol. Great product. Can’t wait to use it for real.

Ed

Nice size for its capacity.

JEFFERY DERIGHT

Battery size options are nice. Using my 23 for running my electronics. Been out twice and battery doesn’t even drop in voltage.

So Far Battery working Great Lasting all Day Plus On My Live scope

James Y.

Great battery I had it running my fish finder and the panoptix box
