Storage Capacity

Choose 60 or 135 ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 60 or 135 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.


38.2V (three 12.8V batteries to be wired in series). This set is intended for 36V applications. (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series up to 48V max)


768 or 1728 Watts (Wh) per battery


F12 terminals (posts that screw in). Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.) (Max 5 ft. lbs. if using included terminal post adapters)


9.5”L x 6.9”W x 8.22”H (242.5mm x 176mm x 209mm) Group 24 equivalent


16.5 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery. OR 27.2 lbs (12.3Kg) per battery for the 135 Ah

Lifecycles (battery lifespan)

Up to 80% capacity for 5,000 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’s. -20'F min, +120'F max optimal discharging temps (battery performs well down to -20'F). Charging 32'F to 120'F. (charge above freezing)


100 A max continuous, 650 A max pulse 10 second pulse, 1,000 CCA per battery (a single DL+ battery has the power to start your car). The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a comparable SLA battery. For carts with a controller greater than 200 Amps the DL+ 135Ah is recommended. If unsure of how many amps your golf cart motor uses buy the DL+ 135Ah or install a 100 Amp fuse if using the DL+ 60Ah.

Motor Controller Limit

The 18-25 mile 60Ah battery is compatible with motor controllers up to 400A and can handle up to 650 Amps of in rush current. The 60 mile 135Ah battery has a 400 Amp max for the motor controller. If you do not know how many amps your golf cart's motor uses then we recommend the 50 mile 135Ah battery set. It is compatible with nearly all golf cart motors on the market.


50 A max, 14 V max recommended, 15 V max. Free 36v 8 amp LiFePO4 charger included. A SLA charger may work, but will reduce performance and lifespan of the battery.

Includes active BMS protection

Contains a circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff, high voltage cutoff, short circuit protection and high temperature protection for increased performance and longer life. A LiFePO4 battery charger is required to turn the battery back on after a BMS cut off.

Cold weather protection

Excellent performance and use down to -20'F. Charing below freezing is not recommended. The DL+ batteries include a cold temperature charging protection cut off

Internal Heating for Winter Use

The DL+ 12V 135Ah battery set includes internal heating for charging when below 0C/32F. Excellent choice for winter warriors.

Charger Included

Free 36v 8 amp LiFePO4 charger included

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL+ 12V 60Ah dual purpose battery is built with Dakota Lithium's legendary LiFePO4 cells. 5,000+ 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 1/3 the weight.

more power less weight

Replaced batteries in an old 36v Yamaha golf cart. I expect the batteries to outlast the cart but maybe the reduced weight will make it last longer.
I used straps to hold the batteries as their height meant that the original clamps couldn’t screw down far enough. After I finished I realized that I could have used a tap to get the clamps to work.

So far I am well pleased

Two years back, I purchased a 1998 TXT EZGO Golf Cart to be kept at our summer home in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. It came with 6 (6v) Deep Cell Batteries in it. They were a bit old and by year two of use (not being able to store indoors and winter exposure to UP Michigan weather) the batteries lacked the power to go more than a couple miles per charge. I began researching replacement batteries about a year ago, and came across Dakota Lithium Batteries being advertised on Instagram and Facebook. Reviews were solid, but as with all lithium batteries, prices were also quite steep. After going back and forth comparing cost to value – I finally reached the decision to purchase the Dakota Lithium 36V Golf Cart Battery Set. When they arrived, it took me about half a day to get the old batteries out, things cleaned up, and the new batteries installed. Since these batteries are much smaller and lighter (seriously – it shaved over 350lbs off the golf cart), much of the installation process was taking out old heavy deep cell batteries, stripping out old wiring, and reinforcing the storage area so that I could strap down the new set to minimize their movement while in use. NOTE: you will need to charge each battery fully before hooking up into a series (took about 3 hours per battery for this first charge). Once installed, the difference was felt immediately! When I pressed on the pedal the acceleration was felt, throwing both my son and I back in the seat. We both laughed and gunned it, with less weight and the power of these batteries we were going faster than ever before. We ran back and forth to town (about 2.5 Miles round trip) five times over the week and never felt a loss of power/speed at anytime. I would’ve likely drove it to town at least two more times, but we were leaving as vacation was ending so I charged overnight and unplugged the next morning. In short, they are well worth the cost – we foresee us getting 10-11 more years of use out of this old golf cart and are excited to have our cart running better than ever.

Purchased these for my wife’s 36v golf cart. Replaced the old lead acid batteries that had to be replaced every two years. Works fantastic and lasts 4 times as long with regular use!

Josh Goldade

When I needed to replace my golf cart batteries this spring I reached out to Dakota Lithium. Their staff was extremely helpful and walked me through which option would be the best fit for my golf cart. I received the batteries shortly after placing my order and installed them into my golf cart. The installation process was very easy with the installation kit provided by Dakota Lithium. It has made an incredible different in weight and performance of my golf cart. I am very happy that I decided to switch to Lithium and would recommend Dakota Lithium to anyone looking to replace their batteries.

Unbelievable how long they go between charging!! I’m so happy with choosing Dakota lithium batteries! Its been a super easy….. only advice I can give is email them don’t call Email is faster. Extremely knowledgeable people will help you get exactly what you need the first time !!!

Chris Ochoa

Replaced 500+ lbs of lead acid 6V batteries with this set and its awesome, faster, longer lasting and lighter!

Jason Leer

Although the cost of the 3 batteries was high, after two rounds of golf they barely lost any power. My cart also goes faster.
