DL+ 12v 135Ah Dual Purpose 1000CCA Starter Battery Plus Deep Cycle Performance

(21 customer reviews)



The ultimate all-purpose battery for both starting engines & deep cycle applications. With 1,000 cold cranking amps (CCA) and a high continuous discharge rate, the DL+ 135Ah has 5X the power of traditional batteries in a case that is 25% smaller than a 100Ah marine battery. PLUS internal even-heat technology for use in extreme heat or cold.

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.


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.


9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.75” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 197 mm) Group 24 equivalent

Group Size 24

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


1620 Watt-hours (Wh)


F12 terminals (posts that screw in) with 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)


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.

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.


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


Recommend for longest life 70A or less (.5C), Max continuous 135A (1C). 14.4 V recommended, 15 V 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..

Charge via Alternator

Drop in replacement for lead acid and AGM starter batteries for vehicles. NOTE: THE DL+ 135Ah IS LIMITED TO AN ALTERNATOR CHARGING PROFILE OF 135 AMPS OR LESS.

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.


All DL batteries are UN 38 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 Quality Control Certified

Engineering, design, quality control and manufacturing

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

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.

Barry B.

Replaced & upgraded 2x62Ah AGMs in my Thor Class C RV with 2x 135Ah DL+ batts. Although “drop in replacement” was possible, I chose to upgraded the Converter for LiPo, switched (380 watt) Solar Controller to Lithium, and upgraded cables for planned addition of 2 more DL+ (For a total of 540Ah) and a 3000 watt inverter. Best part is the size – I can easily fit 4 DL+ under my steps, with only minimal rewiring of the factory setup. All is working wonderfully!

Corey B.

My overall experience with the Dakota Lithium batteries exceeded my expectations. Including the performance gains in my Triton Bass boat. Faster on plane and more top end speed. Very happy with my purchase.

Craig Ritter

Perfect for both starting engine and enough power for all my accessories

Jess McCoy

This battery was bought to expand the capabilities of the PowerBox, so I now have twice the A/H and can also use my 1500 watt inverter for larger loads than the PowerBox will handle. Solar panels will also be used when needed.

10 on the scale

The DL+ 135Ah battery arrived quickly and is exactly what I needed. I’m using it as a dedicated power source for my three Humminbird head units and a 360 Mega unit on my Skeeter bass boat. I installed a Victron Smart Shunt to monitor battery condition and performance. On my first trip out, after 9 hours of constant usage, the battery is still at 97% charge – exceeding expectations, for sure. Thanks for a great product. I’m equally as pleased with my DL+ 60 Ah 36v system for the trolling motor which provides multiple days of fishing on each charge.

Ken B.

Been a great battery

Peter G.

Super pleased with the three 135Ah dual-purpose batteries that I installed in my Patriot Campers X1-N GT offroad/overlanding camper trailer. They enabled me to replace the standard 240Ah AGM battery pack (120Ah usable capacity) with a 405Ah LifePO4 battery pack (324Ah usable capacity) and a constant (full) 12v power supply, 50% weight saving and fast recharging.

So so good I get 2 days of run time on the trolling motor and still have power left
