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.


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)


720 Watt-hours (Wh) per battery


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)


9.5”L x 6.9”W x 7.44”H (242.5mm x 176mm x189mm) OR DL+ 12V 135Ah 9.5”L x 6.9”W x 7.75”H (242.5mm x 176mm x 197mm) Group 24 equivalent. BCI Group GC2


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


100A max continuous, 650A 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.


50A max, 14V.4V recommended, 15V max. Free 48V 8A 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. Avoid charging below 32°F. 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 0°C/32°F. Optimal for winter warriors.

Charger Included

Free 48V 8A and 12V 10A LiFePO4 charger included. Dakota Lithium 48V batteries in series 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.

Suitable for:

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

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.

Works great.
More Power going up hills.
Expensive but well worth it.

Virgil Johnson

I am very happy with the battery set and the entire process. Delivery was very fast.


Awesome product delivered in advance of projected time frame. Reduced over 230 lbs in my Club Car cart.

Bottom line, these batteries are nice.

They are, however, not plug and play replacement batteries from your traditional 6 lead acid batteries. They are a little smaller, so some modification was necessary to the cart to mount them.

Here’s what I did (a few hours and ~$60 worth of materials): I added some thick plexiglass to the bottom of the cart creating a tray and then glued some aluminum “L” brackets in the configuration that I wanted for mounting. Came out pretty tight. Then shaved off and made new mounting bolts for the sinch down.

The weight difference between these batteries compared to lead acid is amazing and these have some good pop to them. I love the cleanliness of this setup! Be sure to use the smaller 12V chargers to top up the batteries individually so once wired in series they are all the same charge. I have a 2016 EZGO TXT 48 for reference. Many of my golf buddies have been upgrading to lithum and spending $3-4K to do it. My cart’s a little older so I wasn’t wanting to spend that cash. For $2,000 (only $500 more than replacing with lead acid) this was a no brainer for me to try and I’m very happy with them so far.

Fit nicely in golf cart; was able to use old battery hold down

Danny E.

Received the Battery set very quickly. They were just as advertised. Connected easily and I’m very happy with the weight. I’ve gained 3 mph in my 2002 48v club car ds.

Robert K.

Great experience so far. Fast delivery, and the 4 12V batteries provide plenty of power to my EasyGo RVX golf cart, with a 7-mile trip finished with 7/8 charge. I was pleasantly surprised to receive 2 48V chargers (15A and 8A) as well as two 8A 12V chargers.

Tim Kavanagh

Very pleased with the representative I spoke with (Chris, I believe). Very professional and provided some valuable suggestions on how to install & maintain the battery system. Sounded sincere when he said to contact him if I run into any issues. Thank you!

Stephen Bernard

Impeccable customer service! Fast responses to questions about their products and installation. Would buy again.
