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

M5 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. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.)

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 than a 23Ah SLA 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

Certifications

All batteries are UN 38 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.

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.

Customer service was great.

Nathan Wallman

Love my new batteries! On a recent fishing trip I couldn’t find a spot to plug in my batteries to charge overnight at my airbnb location. Thankfully the batteries had enough juice to last me the following day as well. Which is amazing considering my old lead acid batteries would rarely last me an entire day.

Thank you Dakota Lithium for great products. I have used this battery to build up a portable charge/power box for my field radio project. So far the battery performs flawlessly. Weight is minimal, power is consistant. The solar panels put out good power for the size. I am a pleased customer and have recommended your products to a few freinds.

John Pennington

Great battery light weight long lasting only had this battery about a month it charges quickly will see how it does when it gets some age on it

Jeffrey K.

Bought the 12V23 battery for my Fishing Kayak Electric Motor. I converted a water Proof case to hold the battery. Keeping it dry. I wired the side of the case to accommodate the battery. Works great used the battery for 8.30 Hours before I recharged it. Lite weight to take in and out of the Kayak. I very happy with this Battery and the charger. I will be buying a second one later this month for my wife’s Kayak.

Anthony Brandt

Light weight, small in size and very dependable.

Ben H.

Got the Renogy 20amp MPPT Controller and the battery stays charged up and can run my water pumps days and cooling fans nights. Very Satisfied!

Mark S.

Purchased two of the 12 volt 23ah batteries. They power a homemade Ev. A tadpole trike. It was a upgrade from my first set of 13 ah lithiums. They were shipped carefully and arrived great. Worked better than the last set. Thanks Dakota!! Looking forward to a long life with this set.
