11 Year Warranty

World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.

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.


48V (not intended for wiring multiple batteries in series, 48V systems only)


4,915 Watt hours (Wh) per battery (4.6 kWh power system)


M8 bolt size. 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"L x 10.5"W x 8.66"H (520mm x 267mm x 220mm)

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 operating temps (battery performs well down to -20°F). Avoid charging below 32°F.


100A max continuous, 200A max pulse for 3-5 minutes. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 100Ah battery.


60A max, 57.6V recommended. Free 48V 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 UN38 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.

ISO 9001:2015

Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.

Charger Included

Free 48V 8A LiFePO4 charger included. Dakota Lithium 48V batteries should be charged at 57.6 volts, higher than AGM or lead acid. Lead acid chargers will work, but will only charge the battery to 80% of capacity. 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 battery will replace a set of 6V, 8V, or 12V batteries in a 48V cart. This battery is suitable for most carts with a max speed of less than 27 mph and a motor controller rated under 240 Amps. If your motor controller is rated 240 Amps or higher, you may need two of these 48V batteries in parallel (some dune buggies, off-road carts, ATVs, and high speed carts fall into this category).

How Much Power do I need for Solar Panels?

Each battery has 4.6 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.

I replaced 4-12 volt with this 48V96AH, I can’t believe the difference it made and the distance I get with my cart. I use my Club Car for hunting, I have knobby tires on the rear and with the loss of approximately 280lbs of battery weight my cart can really climb hills !!! I realize the battery is expensive but with wet cell batteries only lasting 3-5 years I thought I would give it a try and I love it!!!

Highly recommend

The 48v Dakota battery is functioning as expected in my 2017 Clubcar President. Installation is not a simple drop- in. The battery compartment is partitioned and the center divider has to be dealt with , as the Dakota spans both halves of the compartment. ( not a deal breaker) Then terminal studs are a bit short , connecting the cart wires and the leads for the charger wires is almost not enough threads. Performance has been excellent so far. — F Stoltz

Great battery! However, free charger failed after 2 months. Installer replaced it under warranty. Good customer service.

Everything was going just great and I was elated with my Dakota battery until this week when my charger didn’t charge. Fortunately, my installer, Dave M., replaced the defective charger within 30 MINUTES of my call. WHAT INCREDIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE! I hope to give a 5 star review next time.

I replaced 4 12 volt batteries in my 2015 EZGO with a 48V 96Ah battery. I used the bottom of the packing foam in the bottom of the cart where old batteries were and set the new one in that – perfect fit!
I changed the Trombetta 36 volt solenoid to 48 volt Trombetta. Hooked all wires up except for one from the old charging socket. That was the Grey one same length as the red one and everything worked great. Cart is much lighter, handles better and goes like heck!

Love these batteries. I replaced 8 6V AGM batteries with a total weight of 960lb with 3 of the 48V Dakota batteries at under 300lbs total. What a difference removing all that weigh has in my sailboat!! That’s right, these power a 10KW electric motor in my 36′ sailboat. (as well as the house circuitry through a 48-12v step down converter) Better performance and a lot less weight… winner winner !!
