11 YEAR WARRANTY: World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.
STORAGE CAPACITY: 60 Ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 60 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”x 6.9”x 7.44” (242.5x176x189mm) Group 24 equivalent
GROUP SIZE 24, 78: 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. Group 24F 24R 24H 24T 26R, 51R, group 78 battery compatible. 51R compatible
ENERGY: 720 Watt-hours (Wh)
TERMINALS: 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)
WEIGHT: 16.5 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery. 1/4-1/2 the weight of a normal car battery.
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 batteries. -20°F min, +150°F max optimal operating temps (battery performs well down to -20°F). Avoid charging below 32°F. Discharge cut off at – 20°F/-20°C. Charge cut off at 23°F/-5°C. BMS high temp cut off at 167°F / 75°C.
DISCHARGE: 100A max continuous discharge, 750A max 2 second pulse, 650A max 5 sec pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity than a 60Ah SLA battery.
ULTRA-FAST CHARGING: DL rapid charge technology allows for charging speeds of 45 minutes (80 Amps). Recommend for longest life 60A or less (1C), Max continuous 80A (1.5C). 14.4V recommended, 15V max, BMS protection from over charging will cut off at 15V. Included is a free 12V 10 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+ 60Ah IS LIMITED TO AN ALTERNATOR CHARGING PROFILE OF 80 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.
COLD TEMPERATURE CHARGING PROTECTION Contains a smart BMS temperature cutoff that prevents charging when cells are below 0°C/32°F and protects the battery.
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
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 certified by ISO 9001:2015 for lithium battery engineering, manufacturing, and quality control. This means that the battery systems available at Dakota Lithium are designed and manufactured to the highest ISO 9001:2015 engineering standards. In addition, quality control is completed by our US based engineering team and follows ISO 9001 standards. This added layer of safety, quality, and reliability ensures that your battery will last a long, long time.
CHARGER INCLUDED12V 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.
