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.
Available on backorder
World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.
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)
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.
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.
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.
50A max, 57.6V recommended. Free 48V 8A LiFePO4 battery charger is included.
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.
Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.
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 shipping included to lower 48 US states. Battery must ship via Freight and will be delivered on a shipping pallet.
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).
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.
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.
