Specifications

11 Year Warranty

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

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.

Voltage

51.2V (four 12.8V batteries to be wired in series). This set is intended for 48V applications. (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)

Energy

768 or 1728 Watts (Wh) per battery

Terminals

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)

Size

Drop in upgrade for 12V lead acid golf cart batteries. DL+ 12V 60Ah is 9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.44” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 189 mm) OR DL+ 12V 135Ah is 9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.75” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 197 mm) Group 24 equivalent

Weight

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

Lifecycles (battery lifespan)

Up to 80% capacity for 2,000 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)

Discharge

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.

Motor Controller Limit

The 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 60 mile battery. It is compatible with nearly all golf cart motors on the market.

Charge

50 A max, 14 V max recommended, 15 V max. Free 48v 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

The DL+ 135Ah (60 mile set) has internal heating for charging in temperatures below 0C/32F. Optimal for winter warriors.

Charger Included

Free 48v 8 amp LiFePO4 charger included

Suitable for:

  • 48V Golf Carts #PlayLonger
  • Club Car 48V Golf Carts
  • Yamaha 48V Golf Carts
  • LiFePO4 Replacement for Golf Cart Batteries

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

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

Arrived in 2 days, easy to install and working great. It’s unbelievable how much better my 2018 Club Car Onward performs with 300 lbs less weight.

Arrived very quick and are working very well. I bought 4 12V 60 AH batteries for my older golf cart. Easy install, and gained 5 MPH top speed! They are so much lighter than my previous batteries (6-8Volts) I even made a storage area under the seat for my cooler!

Roger

These 4 batteries replaced 8 each 6 V led acid batteries and nearly 400 lbs lighter. We see increased performance and a better handling cart!

Stephen

Powering a 2004 Club Car. Reduced weight by 300 pounds…went from 6 eight volt lead-acid batteries to 4 twelve volt Dakota Lithium batteries. Install was easy because the new batteries fit right on the existing frame. Wired all four in series with new wiring kit. We use the cart in our retirement community to transport gear to/from our boat and general errands around the ‘hood. Top speed has increased about 5mph. My wife’s mobile phone now goes into ‘Do Not Disturb While Driving’ mode (in the cart)…never did that before. Love the 11 year warranty, but now I have to live to 82 to make sure I don’t get cheated on the warranty 😂

We have an electric UTV and initial testing with these has been great. The weight reduction over the lead acid is amazing and despite the lower total AH rating, we get better performance over the entire charge cycle. Given that you never get the rated capacity out of a lead acid battery, I’d say the Dakota Lithiums are outperforming hands down. So far so good. Customer service at Dakota is excellent. They are responsive and actually answer questions. Things we still have to sort out will be a battery heating system, better tie down since they are a bit smaller than the FLAs, and possibly a smart charger; the one supplied requires a timer to prevent overcharging, but otherwise it works just fine. Looking forward to not having to replace these things every two years.

Absolutely shocked at how much difference these batteries made in my golf cart! I about three myself out of it on the fist ride! Incredibly light weight and extremely powerful! Great products

Cory Martin

I am about a month in and So far they are amazing! Incredibly light and extremely powerful.

Barry Yeaman

Took a chance on these for a golf cart 48v battery system replacement. So far, they are working great. Havent had to charge them yet. The fact that they removed 300 lbs from the original batteries was pretty impressive. So far so good.

Wayne C.

So far, so good! I installed the battery set in a 2008 Yamaha YDRE golf cart. I had a few questions before buying and installing them, and the customer support was very fast and thorough in answering my email questions. Installation was easy. The cart has recessed “wells” under the seat to hold lead-acid batteries, and since the new batteries are smaller I did a couple of things to hold them in place better. First, I cut some 1/2 inch pipe conduit to act like a stack of washers for the hold-down brackets. I think that would have been enough to hold the batteries in place, but I also cut some small blocks of wood to fill the gaps in the “wells” so the batteries cannot move forward or backward.

The new batteries cut just over 250 pounds, so acceleration seems better.

The set is supposed to last about 25 miles. I did just over 17 miles, and the batteries still moved the cart nicely. I imagine they would have gone quite a while longer. It took between 4-5 hours to recharge with the standard DL charger supplied with the batteries.

Time will tell, but I am optimistic these batteries will work well, last a long time, and be more economical than standard lead-acid batteries due to a longer life.
