Dakota Lithium 48v 96Ah Deep Cycle LiFePO4 Battery

(3 customer reviews)


With 5kWh of deep cycle power inside of a single power source, this is the largest battery Dakota Lithium makes and it optimized for deep cycle and marine applications like 48V golf carts, 48V solar energy storage, 48V electric outboard motors, or any 48V application where you need steady power for a long time.

Storage Capacity

96 ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 96 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.




4,915 Watt hours (Wh) per battery (4.9 kWh power system)


F12 terminals (posts that screw in) with M8 terminal bolts included. Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.)


77 lbs (35Kg). That's 80% lighter than a set of lead acid batteries, saving 300 lbs. of weight.


20.5 in (520mm) L x 10.5 in (267mm) W x 8.66 in (220mm) H

Battery Range

For carts with a max speed of 23 mph or less expect a battery range of 40 - 60 miles depending on cart model. For carts with a max speed of 27 mph expect a battery range of 30 - 40 miles. Wire 2 units in parallel to double the battery range.

Lifecycles (battery lifespan)

Up to 100% capacity for 2,000 recharge cycles (100%DOD), 80% capacity at ≥4,000 recharge cycles (80%DOD), 50% capacity at ≥6,000 (50%DOD - battery half life). 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 environmental operating temps


100 A max continuous, 200 A max pulse 10 second pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 100Ah battery.


50 A max, 57.6 V max recommended. Free 8A LiFePO4 battery charger is included.

Includes active BMS protection

Contains a circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff, high voltage cutoff, short circuit protection and 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 (included w purchase).


All 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.

Charger Included

Free 48V 8A LiFePO4 charger included. Upgrade to 48V 15A charger for 2X the charging time.

FREE Freight Shipping

Free shipping included to lower 48 US states. Battery must ship via Freight and will be delivered on a shipping pallet.

How Much Power do I need for my golf cart?

This single 48V golf cart battery will replace a set of 6V, 8V, or 12V batteries and is suitable for most golf carts with a max speed of <27 mph and a motor controller with an amp rating of 250 Amps then you will need two batteries in parallel (some dune buggies, off-road golf carts, ATVs, and high speed carts fall into this category).

How Much Power do I need for Solar Panels?

Each battery has 4.9 kWh of power storage. 48V has an efficiency advantage for solar energy systems (google 48V vs 12V for solar energy). 500 - 800 watts of solar panel capacity with a 48V solar charge controller would fully charge this battery daily.

Suitable for:

  • Drop In 48V Lithium Replacement Battery
  • 48V Golf Carts #PlayLonger
  • 48V Electric Outboard Motors
  • 48V Solar Energy Power Systems
  • 48V Electric Vehicles
  • Single 48V LiFePO4 Replacement for 6V, 8V, and 12V Golf Cart Batteries
  • 40 - 60 mile battery range for most golf carts
  • Torqueedo 48V Outboard Motors
  • Wire 2 in parallel for double the battery range
  • Elco 48V Outboard Motors
  • Yamaha 48V Golf Carts
  • Excellent for 48V Taylor-Dunn Golf Carts
  • Preferred Upgrade for 48V Polaris Golf Carts
  • Ideal for 48V Par Car
  • Compatible with most 48V golf carts

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL 48V 96Ah 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.
