Specifications

11 Year Warranty

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

Storage Capacity

135 Ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 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

12.8V (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)

Engine Starting Power

Lithium battery equivalent to 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) of lead acid battery engine starting power. Suitable for automotive and other applications. Marine Outboards: Please refer to your manufacturer recommendations.

Size

9.5”L x 6.9”W x 8.24”H (242.5mm x 176mm x 197mm) Group 24 equivalent

Group Size 24

Group 24 compatible physical dimensions & 24F terminal orientation. Group 34 compatible. Cranking power (CCA rating) & usable deep cycle capacity is much higher than a lead-acid battery of the same group size. Group 24F 24R 24H 24T compatible. BCI Group GC2. M27-1000 compatible.

Energy

1620 Watt-hours (Wh)

Terminals

M8 size bolts. Includes a terminal adapter kit with automotive & marine posts that screw into the M8 bolt terminal, and M8 brass terminal bolts. Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.) (Max 5 ft. lbs. on terminal post adapters)

Weight

27.2 lbs (12.3 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery. 1/2 the weight of a normal car battery.

Lifecycles (battery lifespan)

Up to 80% capacity for 2,500 cycles in recommended conditions. The typical automotive SLA has 500 cycles. Dakota Lithium batteries last so long that the price per use is a fraction of traditional batteries.

Waterproof Rating

IP 67 waterproof rating achieved through robotic liquid welding of the lid and terminals.

Operating temperature

Ideal for rugged & harsh environments. Much better than SLA or other lithium batteries. -20°F min, +150°F max optimal operating temps (battery performs well down to -20°F). Internal even-heat technology allows for charging below 32°F. BMS high temp cut off at 167°F / 75°C.

Discharge

135A max continuous discharge, 1000A max 2 second pulse, 900A max 5 sec pulse. 9.0V Max discharge, 11.0V Max recommended discharge.The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity than a 135Ah SLA battery with the same CCA rating.

Peak / Continuous Charge

Recommend for longest life 70A or less (.5C), Peak charge acceptance 165A max for one minute, 200A max BMS cutoff. Max continuous 135A (1C). 14.4V recommended, 15V max, BMS protection from over charging will cut off at 15V. Included is a free 12V 10 Amp (A) LiFePO4 compatible charger that charges at the recommended 14.4 Volts..

Max Charge / Alternator Size

Peak charge acceptance 165A max for one minute, 200A max BMS cutoff. Drop in replacement for lead acid and AGM starter batteries for vehicles. Limited to a max alternator size of 150 amps or less per battery (link multiple batteries in parallel for alternators >150 Amps).

Reserve Capacity

340 minutes (RC25 @ 80°F)

Includes active BMS protection

Contains a high discharge capable circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff (10V) preventing over discharge, high voltage cutoff (15V) preventing over charging, short circuit protection and temperature protection for increased performance and longer life.

Internal Even-Heat Technology

Increases performance in extreme cold. When charging the battery in temperatures below 0°C/32°F DL's internal heating element will warm the cells to 0°C/32°F. This increases the lifespan, performance, and efficiency of the battery.

Certifications

All DL 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.

ISO 9001:2015

Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.

Dual Purpose Use

Multi-purpose use as a deep cycle battery and/or as a starter battery for starting gasoline engines. Marine Outboards: Please refer to your manufacturer recommendations

Charger Included

12V 10A LiFePO4 charger included. Dakota Lithium 12V batteries should be charged at 14.4 volts, higher than AGM or lead acid. Lead acid chargers will work, but will only charge the battery to 80% of capacity.

Mercury Motors Compliant

Experience the Dakota Lithium Difference

The DL+ 135Ah 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. Internal even heat tech provides optimal performance down to minus 20 degrees Fahrenheit (for winter warriors). Plus five times the power of lead-acid batteries at half the weight.

Great compact battery had my 21ft bass boat out for about 8 hours an had no trouble.

Steve W.

so far great battery’s

Donald

I did not get to use the batteries yet but when I received
them they were packaged very tightly and securely they are a lot smaller and lighter than I did have so I will follow up after I get to use them. Dakota batt. was very helpful to deal with answered question respectfully. Thanks Dakota Batt. & Tim Tedore

John Knoll

I had a GREAT experience dealing with both Elise Gray and Shaun La Garry in acquiring my pair of 135 Ah lithium batteries. I have them hooked up to my custom built camper and so fair they have been working GREAT. These batteries are presently been used and tested and so fair everything is great. I confidently believe everything is going to work just GREAT. Thanks for everyone involved and thanks for a great product.

Scott Gibson

great power and less weight in boat

Michael Henry

Working great

dodge kramer

I’m powering 2 humminbird solix 12’s, 360 imagery, mega live, and network box off of this battery. It also serves as my boat backup starter. Lasts a full 12 hour day. Light and small. Worth the money.

William

I use two of them to power my Airstream Basecamp. Why a duel purpose? Because two of these 135s fit in the same very limited space as my previous two, 50 amp lead acid batteries. Before, I could barely get two days of camping out of my lead acid batteries. Now I have gone 6 days and still have 83% power left according to my Victron meter.
