For 12 volt lithium batteries

We highly reccomend you use a LiFePO4 compatible charger. 12v chargers for lead acid batteries may work, but will decrease performance and lifespan of the battery.

Charger rating

INPUT 100-240 volts, 50/60HZ. OUTPUT: 14.4 volts, 3.0 amps

Terminal Connections

Alligator clips for ease of use. Clip black to your black terminal. Red to your red terminal. Do not short circuit. Red light on the charger will turn on when charging. Light turns green when the battery is full.

Smart BMS Communication

Charger will restart or "wake up" a Dakota Lithium BMS that has turned off a battery due to short circuit or excessive amp draw. Simply connect the charger to the battery to initiate a restart.

How fast will my battery charge?

Choose a 3 amps. To determine your charging speed take the amp hour rating of your battery and divide by the amp rating of your charger. For example, a 3 amp charger would fully charge a 7 amp hour battery (Ah) in 2.3 hours.

Can I charge my battery faster?

For most applications a charging time of 3 - 10 hours provides the longest lifespan for your battery. But if you have an application where you need rapid charging Dakota Lithium batteries can be safely charged in up to 1 hour (at a rate of 1C). For example, you could use a 10 amp charger with a 10 Ah battery for a 1 hour charge time. Charging at a 1 hour rate does reduce the lifespan over time. In our laboratory testing we found that the longest lifespan for Dakota Lithium batteries was at a charging speed of 0.3C or less (we recommend that the charger amp rating is 1/3 or less of the battery amp hour rating for longest lifespan).

What voltage should LiFePO4 batteries be charged at?

14.4 volts is recommended for Dakota Lithium (LiFePO4) batteries. This charger charges at 14.4 volts.

What is the difference between a 3 amp and 10 amp charger?

The amp rating is how much energy goes into your battery in 1 hr. For example, a 10 amp charger will charge a 54 amp hour battery in 5.4 hours. An appropriate sized charger should be 1/3 of less the amp rating of your battery. For example, a 3 amp charger is perfect for a 10 amp hour (Ah) battery.

Suitable for:

  • Charging 12v batteries
  • Compatable with all 12 volt Dakota Lithium Batteries
  • LiFePO4 Compatible Charger
  • 3A (amps) size is optimal for batteries <25Ah
  • Choose the 10A (amps) charger for batteries >25Ah

Ad says 14.4V 3a😐, charger SAYS 14.4v 2a🤔, but
multimeters(plural) says 13.6v/1.8a & 13.5v/1.7a😡

I have contacted twice to find out what the hell, but no response🤬. I paid a high price for your products because of good reviews online and from a couple friends but to advertise your chargers at 12v/3a and send a 12v/2a that neither of em even puts out what it says it does on top of sending the wrong thing is amateur as hell. I am pissed. I tried twice to get this rectified figuring it was simple human error, no biggie. But now I’m begging to question the ethics of this company and the quality of their products. If this is the business practice used with the chargers why would the batteries be any different? Makes me wonder if they held to the higher standards I was led to believe they had. 11 year warranty is phenomenal and screams ▪︎High Quality Products, Made With High Quality Standards, From High Quality People▪︎but that’s not my experience with the chargers. Batteries work good….for now.

Due to being backordered I was sent the 10A charger for no additional charge.
