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.

Good ,also very light.

Nicholas Frantz

I don’t mind the extra cost when u can buy American and work with a company like this. Put these on an 05 Ford Excursion with the 6.0 diesel. They work great

Eugene C.

I would like to rate the battery higher. But, I believe I should have purchased a bigger model. Would like to upgrade!
I bet my review would be more like the review of my 36 volt 63ah!
This 47 pounder paired with a 36 volt terrova has been the best upgrade yet.
Was able to shed 120 pounds from the front of the boat. All day trolling power. Installed early August. So I have only had 7 outings as our boating season freezes up for 2021. Next season is gonna be the test! 8-11 hours on the trolling motor.
I river fish! It’s great to just power the terrova up to unsnag a lure a cast upriver, instead of having to fire the Evinrude. So far 6-7 hours on the trolling motor with power left. So far 4 stars.

Which brings me back to the new Dl+12v60 amp. Awesome, took another 30 pounds out of the boat! Great crisp power for the 2 HDS units.
I believe I will need to upgrade. Now that I upgraded the trolling motor. I’m not starting the Evinrude as often which doesn’t throw a small charge at the battery. After about 4 hours of fishing. I fired the Evinrude to cruiise to another spot. That’s when I saw the volt meter on the HDS 8 showing just above 11.

Would like suggestions on either larger battery to upgrade to. or a 2nd battery.

These batteries are GREAT and so are the people that you have to work with very helpful and knowledgeable and go out of the way to sever you Thanks Dakota Lithium battery you are the best…..!!!!!

Chris F.

Amazing battery for cranking the motor and running graphs

Arlan Freeman

Super lightweight. Zero complaints.

Eric H.

The staff is the most knowledgable and helpful of any fishing related company I have talked to. Kept me updated on shipping. Battery works great and is 60 lbs lighter than the old lead battery I paid almost as much for. I will be purchasing two trolling motor batteries in December. I highly recommend Dakota. Great people and great product.

George Bristow

Love it !!!

james louviere

I gave this 5 stars based on the performance of my 2 100 Amp Hour Batteries. I bought these for my boat. I am going to run two of these for engine starting and to power four 12″ Humminbird Helix units. I use the 100’s on my Kayak. One for my Trolling Motor and they other for Depth finders and spare power as a backup for the TM.
