DL+ 12v 60Ah Dual Purpose 1000CCA Starter Battery Plus Deep Cycle Performance

(72 customer reviews)



An ultralight all-purpose battery for both starting engines & deep cycle applications. With 1,000 cold cranking amps (CCA) and a high continuous discharge rate, the DL+ 60Ah is a great choice for high amp draw applications like starting engines, car audio, heavy machinery, golf carts, or any electronics that require a lot of power at one time.

Storage Capacity

60 ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 60 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)

Engine Starting Power

Lithium battery equivalent to 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) of lead acid battery engine starting power. Suitable for automotive and other applications. Marine Outboards: Please refer to your manufacturer recommendations.


9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.44” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 189 mm) Group 24 equivalent

Group Size 24

Group 24 compatible physical dimensions & 24F terminal orientation. Cranking power (CCA rating) & usable deep cycle capacity is much higher than a lead-acid battery of the same group size.


768 Watt-hours (Wh)


F12 terminals (posts that screw in) with M8 size bolts. Includes a terminal adapter kit with automotive & marine posts that screw into the M8 bolt terminal, and M8 brass terminal bolts. Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.) (Max 5 ft. lbs. on terminal post adapters)


16.5 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery. 1/4-1/2 the weight of a normal car 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 batteries. -20'F min, +150'F max optimal operating temps (battery performs well down to -20'F). Avoid charging below 32'F. Discharge cut off at - 20'F / -20'C. Charge cut off at 23'F / - 5'C. BMS high temp cut off at 167'F / 75'C.


100 A max continuous discharge, 750A max 2 second pulse, 650A max 5 sec pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity than a 60Ah SLA battery.

Ultra-Fast Charging

DL rapid charge technology allows for charging speeds of 45 minutes (80 Amps). Recommend for longest life 60A or less (1C), Max continuous 80A (1.5C). 14.4 V recommended, 15 V max, BMS protection from over charging will cut off at 15V. Included is a free 12V 10 Amp (A) LiFePO4 compatible charger that charges at the recommended 14.4 Volts..

Charge via Alternator

Drop in replacement for lead acid and AGM starter batteries for vehicles. NOTE: THE DL+ 60Ah IS LIMITED TO AN ALTERNATOR CHARGING PROFILE OF 80 AMPS OR LESS.

Includes active BMS protection

Contains a high discharge capable circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff (10V) preventing over discharge, high voltage cutoff (15V) preventing over charging, short circuit protection and temperature protection for increased performance and longer life.

Cold temperature charging protection

Contains a smart BMS temperature cutoff that prevents charging when cells are below 0'C/32'F and protects the battery.


All DL 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, train, & marine transport.

Dual Purpose Use

Multi-purpose use as a deep cycle battery and/or as a starter battery for starting gasoline engines. Marine Outboards: Please refer to your manufacturer recommendations

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL+ 60Ah 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.

This battery is kick ass. I’ve got it installed in a BMW 335D that had the fuel system disconnected and therefore needed to crank for a solid 3 or so minutes total to start – let me tell you the starter did not go down in pitch the ENTIRE time. It just. kept. going. Actually, I swear it started spinning a bit faster after awhile. I kept waiting for it to poop out and I realized with this technology, the battery is no longer the limiting factor with starting your car. This battery is lighter, more powerful, has more energy, I don’t have to worry if it discharges all the way, and it’s going to last like 3 times as long. I’ll have this until the next decade. Never going back to lead acid.
My only complaint is that you can’t charge these under 32⁰. Hardly a problem since they’ll warm up after a little drive and this probably has double the capacity of what’s already in your car. Nonetheless, I’ll be looking into heating pad solutions this winter and hope Dakota implements some internal heating for their other batteries soon!
Way cheaper than Antigravity where you’ll be shelling out 4 digits for a 60 ah battery. Unless you are cranking a tank over you will not notice any benefit of more than 1000 CCA, this is absolutely plenty. Be more worried about your gas turning into ice before this battery gets too cold to work.
Love it!

I have been using a Dakota as my house battery and when these dual use came out I decided to replace all the lead acid batteries on my boat. Great products guys keep up the great work!!


I swapped out a pair of Trolling motor AGM’s and my cranking battery for Dakota Lithium Batteries. I ran the boat 8 hours trolling and playing music while charging two phones. The DL+ held up great. I also have the added benefit of about 70 less pounds in my stern.

small sample though with 5 hour fishing trip.

I have bought other batteries in the past from other companies and they were telling me they are going to last 15 hours they’re lucky it lasted 4 hours so I went to a different directions and I took a chance with your company I was so happy I spent that money on your battery because it lasted 8 hours I was very very happy thank you so much it’s a little pricey but in the long run it’s so much worth it

Bryan David

Fantastic product. The weight savings alone are phenomenal. All day power


Fits nicely in my trucks auxiliary battery position.

My primary use for this battery is to power my CPAP machine in our RV when camping, as well as when we have a power outage. The power and weight make them easy to store and carry. Prior, I was using lead group 24 deep cycle, which were heavy and didn’t last as long.

Martin Randolph

I replied to your email with a link to a Youtube video I made switching my old lead acid battery to the new Dakota lithium Ion battery. Feel free to use it any way you want. I also recommended your product to a friend of mine who also ordered one of them.
