Specifications

11 Year Warranty

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

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.

Voltage

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

Engine Starting Power

Rated to 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) of engine starting power. Suitable for marine, automotive, and other applications. 1/4-1/2 the weight of a normal car battery.

Size

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 equivalent for physical dimensions & terminal location. Cranking power (CCA rating) & usable deep cycle capacity is much higher than a lead-acid battery of the same group size.

Energy

768 Watts (Wh)

Terminals

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.)

Terminal layout

The terminal layout for the first production batch has the positive (+) on the left and the negative (-) on the right. Please check your wiring harness for length to fit both possible wire configurations.

Weight

16.5 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead 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.

Discharge

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.

Charge

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 most mid-sized vehicles. Can be charged by an engine's alternator at 80 Amps or less. For very large alternators with alternators >100Amps (Diesel trucks, large boat engines) a DC-DC charger is recommended to protect the battery and ensure a longer lifespan.

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'F/C and protects the battery.

Certifications

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.

Charger Included

10A LiFePO4 charger included

  • Starting Car, Boat, and Light Truck Engines
  • Marine Applications

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.

Jacob

Great batteries! Super lightweight!

Jim M.

Again, performance exceeds expectations and the reduction in weight is very noticable.

Justin K.

Love it so far….longer power and saving 30lbs in weight for a smaller aluminum boat is so worth it. Boat planes faster and is better balanced overall. Smaller in size so it tucks in some small spaces. Also love my 24volt as well for the same reasons.

Ronald Cherven

This battery is awesome! The cranking power is noticeably stronger than my 24 group lead acid starting battery and it’s less than half the weight (16.5lb vs 40lb). After a full day of fishing, with all my electronics connected to my new Dakota, it only took about an hour to charge it back to full! I can’t see fishing without Dakota Lithium ever again.

Tim Axe

Runs everything on my boat along with 4 garmin 93sv w livescope. Ran it for over two hours without moving, and battery never dropped below 12.6v.

Paul C.

Works perfect for my boat!

Mack

So glad I went with Dakota lithium batteries. I went from having 5 SLA batteries to 2 DL batteries. I can go 3 days of fishing without charging my batteries.

Joseph B.

I am truly happy about my purchase with Dakota lithium batteries. I have a total of 5 batteries 3 100ah for the trolling motor and have been testing it in some serious current and windy conditions I have it paired with a shunt Bluetooth to know what they are doing the entire time I charge my batteries with NOCO battery charger it’s meant for your lithiums .and without a doubt I usually fish about 8 to 10 hrs in the same current still have power at the end of the day. I have the new cranking battery in the back of the boat paired with another 100ah battery to run my accessories without the worry. I would never just say these things without truly putting them through the test. I previously had lead acid batteries in my 23 ft Sea Pro and could only get them to stay at max on the trolling motor for about 30min because of the drop that it has in power with Dakota it’s a no brainer there’s no drop. Sorry so long-winded had to get the message across.

Michael

I’ve been using the DL+ for car camping with children. Fits perfectly in my 1995 Subaru Forester. I enjoy wilderness backpacking and more extreme adventure, but with family car camping I’ve found it’s really nice to have so much extra battery capacity. People can leave the dome light on, charge devices, etc, and I’m not worried about draining it. It’s great for all these ‘house battery’ uses… and it starts the car too!
