Storage Capacity

54 Ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 100 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.


12.8V (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)


691 Watt-hours (Wh)


M6 bolt size. Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.)


9.01”x 5.43”x 8.38” (229x138x213mm) Group 24. Group 24F 24R 24H 24T compatible.


17.6 lbs (8 Kg). 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.


50A max continuous, 100A max pulse 10 second pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity than a 54Ah SLA battery.


25A max, 14.4V recommended, 15V max. Included is 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.


All batteries are UN38 certified. Dakota Lithium's cells are UL1642 certified and have been tested per IEC62133 standards. Meets all US & International regulations for air, ground, train, & marine transport.

ISO 9001:2015

Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.

Deep Cycle Use Only

This is a deep cycle battery. Not designed for starting gasoline engines.

Charger Included

12V 10A LiFePO4 charger included. Dakota Lithium 12V batteries should be charged at 14.4 volts, higher than AGM or lead acid. Lead acid chargers will work, but will only charge the battery to 80% of capacity.

Suitable for:

  • Trolling Motors #FishLonger
  • Marine Applications
  • #VanLife & RV Battery Upgrade
  • Link in Series for 24V, 36V, 48V
  • Industrial Batteries (Bulk Pricing)

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL 54Ah 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 use this in a battery box on my iSUP. It powers my Solix12 MSI+ G2 with no problem. It has enough power to run the Solix12 for over 24hrs before needing a charge.

The charger that comes with the battery runs hot but seems to work fine. Though the alligator clips and the negative (black wire) seem a little janky. Everything is working as it should so I cant complain to much.

With that all said I would definitely buy again and would recommend this to anyone needing a reliable power solution.

Note: I have only been using this for a couple weeks now, only time will tell for a long term review.

So happy with my battery! I have a Bonafide ss127 and use it to power my motorguide Xi3 trolling motor, as well as my Lowrance fish finder. I keep my Dakota Lithium Battery in my YakAttack BlackPlack for easy accessibility, and also to balance out the weight of my trolling motor. I fish tournaments, so I need something reliable. I had a bad experience with a different company’s battery (Weize). Their customer service was a nightmare as well, so I spoke with Gene Jensen (The Flukemaster), to get his advice. He said that I should buy from Dakota, and he was right! I’m officially a Dakota Lithium customer for life! Would love to post pics or a video of my setup, but it isn’t giving me the option, so I will post it on my Instagram account @LadyKayakAngler 🎣💙

It looks strong and heavy duty, I have not yet used it.

This battery is flat out awesome. It is used to power a 45lb thrust Minn Kota Powerdrive mounted on a Jackson BigRig HD kayak. I constantly am on the trolling motor on a river system and this battery does not lose charge and gives me confidence to make runs and stay in position to make my presentations. No matter if I am fishing a tournament or practicing, this battery is a true game changer for kayak fishing with a motor. Great product!


Wow! This has so much more power that the lead acid battery I had before. I installed it in our tandem Kayak and it was off to the races with the trolling motor. We did not have to paddle a single stroke after
Three hours of constant use. Seeing is believing!
