Product Description

This 48 volt battery charger will charge a 48V lithium battery at a rate of 8 amps. Dakota Lithium has optimized this LiFePO4 battery charger for use with our lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4 or LFP). Not recommended for charging lead acid or SLA batteries. Built for a balance of lightweight and durability, this charger is rated at 8 amps and will charge a Dakota Lithium 48V 96Ah battery in ~12 hours. All Dakota Lithium batteries should be charged using a LiFePO4 battery charger like this one. Suitable for 48 volt lithium batteries 10Ah and larger.

Includes an Anderson plug with ring terminals for safe & easy charging. Simply plug the charger into the Anderson plug, and remove when done. Also compatible with all Connect-Ease trolling motor wiring kits (add on).

Charger Rating
Input: 100-240 volts, 50/60HZ
Output: 57.6 volts, 8.0 amps

Terminal Connections
Anderson SB 50 connections make it easy to connect your charger to the battery. Install the ring terminals using the bolts on your terminals, then connect the charger via the Anderson plug when you need to charge. Red light on the charger will turn on when charging. Light turns green when the battery is full.

Smart BMS Communication
Charger will restart or "wake up" a Dakota Lithium BMS that has turned off a battery due to short circuit or excessive amp draw. Simply connect the charger to the battery to initiate a restart.

How Fast Will My Battery Charge?
Charges at a rate of 8 amps. To determine your charging speed take the amp hour rating of your battery and divide by 8. For example, this 8 amp battery charger will charge a 60Ah battery bank in 7.5 hours.

Can I Charge My Battery Faster?
For most applications a charging time of 3 - 10 hours provides the longest lifespan for your battery. But if you have an application where you need rapid charging Dakota Lithium batteries can be safely charged in up to 1 hour (at a rate of 1C). For example, you could use an 8 amp charger with an 8Ah battery for a 1 hour charge time. Charging at a 1 hour rate does reduce the lifespan over time. In our laboratory testing we found that the longest lifespan for Dakota Lithium batteries was at a charging speed of 0.3C or less (we recommend that the charger amp rating is 1/3 or less of the battery amp hour rating for longest lifespan).

What Voltage Should LiFePO4 Batteries Be Charged At?
57.6 volts is recommended for 48V Dakota Lithium batteries. This 48 volt battery charger charges at 57.6 volts.
