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

I have a Dakota battery and i needed a charger. The batteries are amazing! I’ve got 2 full days of ice fishing with this battery. I power a marcum RT9 which has a split screen with GPS navigation on one side and a flasher on the other. I have plans on mounting everything in my kayak this spring. One of the Dakota battery box’s would work well in keeping everything dry. Thanks

These batteries are absolutely awesome and a game changer as far as I’m concerned. Highly recommend them if you need a battery to last all day. Previously I had a 10amp SLA battery for my Marcum LX9 which would maybe last 7 hours tops. This meant I would need another battery to continue using the device for the day. The first time using the Dakota Lithium 10amp battery around 8:30am, it lasted all day fishing which I thought was impressive and half the weight is good for portability. I wanted to know how long it would last so I left in on in the back of the truck for the 2 hour right home. It was still on when I arrived home at 10pm! I still left it on overnight but It wasn’t on in the morning so I don’t know exactly how long it lasted but certainly it will last for an entire day fishing. The charger pictured above charged the depleted battery in about 5 hours. Extremely impressed and highly recommend! Thanks Dakota Lithium Batteries!!

Charges quickly and has an indicator light to show when the charge is complete.

Michael Margolis

Super simple very efficient charger.

Darin Johnson

Great product! Sturdy charger clips make this better than most on the market.


Fast shipping and charger is compact enough for my husband store with his fishing stuff when not in use.

Steve H.

Easy to use.


Works as it should with the Dakota lithium battery
