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.


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)


Drop in upgrade for 12V lead acid golf cart batteries. DL+ 12V 60Ah is 9.5”x 6.9” x 7.44” (242.5x 176x189mm) OR DL+ 12V 135Ah is 9.5”x 6.9”x 7.75” (242.5x 176x 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

Optimal performance down to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit (for winter warriors). Plus twice the power of lead-acid batteries at 1/3 the weight.

Great value and very effective

Raymond Halen

Nice upgrade for my 97 Club Car DS

David Frasier

Love my 48 volt battery set. Got rid of my heavy, dirty lead acid batteries and never want to see them again. My EZGO golf cart runs better than ever. I also plan to take my new batteries from our winter home in AZ. To our summer home in WI. They are light enough to make that possible. I can use them in my RV and for my boat trolling motor. I believe I made a great investment. Your 11 year warranty gives me confidence in my decision. Thanks for a great product. I’ll send a photo of my battery install in a separate e-mail.

Robert Dale

Light weight, nice carry handle, clean and powerful.

Tom Powers

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!


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!


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.
