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 (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)


4,608 Watt hours (Wh) per battery (4.6kWh 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"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.


50A max, 57.6V max 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.

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.

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).

Free Freight Shipping

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

Suitable for:

  • 48V Golf Carts #PlayLonger
  • 48V Replacement Battery
  • Club Car 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.

Purchased two 48v golf cart batteries for my John Deere Electric Gator and replaced eight 6-volt wet cell batteries. Added a new charger and 48v to 120v ac inverter. Of course, rewired everything and added a Smart BMV so I can monitor the battery status on the cart and view full status on my phone.

light weight hassle free. easy install

I used this in a John Deer e-Gator. I removed the 8 six volt batteries and replaced them with the Dakota Lithium Battery. The cart is wonderful. Very spry and much faster than before. The weigh reduction has made the steerinbg so much easier. This has been a phenomenal change.

The 48V battery works as advertised. I installed it in our 2019 Club Car Tempo and it has improved its acceleration and distance over the old lead acid batteries it came with, and no more filling the batteries with distilled water is a bonus.

James Feist

It was a simple DIY installation in my “star car” golf cart. By utilizing the available instructions, we were able to install two 48 volt/ 96 AH batteries, and utilize the existing 48v to 12v transformer and “charge” indicator. The only thing I needed to purchase were the protective fuses and “fresh”battery cables of the correct length. The Cart is licensed as a “low speed vehicle” for on road use. Since installing these batteries, nightly recharging is a thing of the past, and negotiating hills has little impact on speed or discharge rate.

Cody Wheeler

Awesome People especially Keira, great product.

Leon Chapman

Great battery!. Had it for a year and no problems.


So far I am very satisfied with my 48 volt battery. I replaced my 8 6volt batteries. Here in Arizona it was a task keeping all batteries topped off with distilled water.
We leave our golf cart parked in our car port. Upon returning after approximately 6 months the batteries have dropped below 30 percent charged so the charger will not charge below 30%. They I need to individually charge to bring them above 30%.
I plan to bring my Lithium battery into our house in our 6 month absence where I maintain a somewhat controlled temperature at 90 degrees. It is much more secure inside as well.

Samuel Jones

The battery was fairly easy to install. Got 3 rounds of golf. So far so good.
