A multi-purpose work horse, the DL+ 12V lithium battery from Dakota Lithium with 60 amp hours (Ah) of capacity is built for high performance in the most rugged and varied of conditions. Start your boat’s engine, crank up the car audio, or run your trolling motor or other deep cycle electronics — this is one battery built to power many passions. Engineered with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) technology this battery has twice the power, half the weight, and lasts 4 times longer than a lead acid battery – providing exceptional lifetime value. Built for dual purpose lithium battery performance the DL+ provides 1,000 cold cranking amps (CCA) and a high continuous discharge rate, making it a great choice for high amp draw applications like starting engines, car audio, golf carts, or any electronics that require a lot of power at one time. In addition, the DL+ provides the same legendary deep cycle marine battery performance that Dakota Lithium batteries are known for, giving you lots of power for a long time. This is the most versatile Dakota Lithium dual purpose battery and includes a terminal adapter kit compatible with most marine and deep cycle applications. Easily link in series to create 24V, 36V, or 48V systems. Lithium deep cycle battery durability, backed by an 11 Year Warranty. A Dakota Lithium 10A charger is included or a discounted upgrade to a 20A charger is optional to recharge in half the time.

60Ah - Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 60Ah's. 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).
9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.44” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 189 mm).
Group Size 24
Group 24 compatible physical dimensions & 24F terminal orientation (+ terminal on right side, - terminal on left side). Cranking power & usable deep cycle capacity is much higher than a lead-acid battery of the same group size. Group 24F 24R 24H 24T 26R, 51R & 78 compatible.
720 watt-hours (Wh).
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.
14.6 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead 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.
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. LiFePO4 batteries are not suitable for use in an engine compartment due to these temperature limitations.
100A max continuous discharge, 750A max 2 second pulse, 650A max 5 sec pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides 75% more usable capacity than a 60Ah SLA battery.
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 14.6V. A Dakota Lithium 10A charger that charges at the recommended 14.4 volts is included and a discounted upgrade to a 20A charger is also available to recharge in half the time.
We do not recommend this battery for automotive or other applications where it would be directly charged off an alternator. To be charged off an alternator, this should be an auxiliary battery and a DC-DC charger like the Orion-Tr Smart Charger installed in order to charge the battery at LiFePO4 acceptable voltages. Marine Outboards: Please refer to your manufacturer recommendations, this battery is limited to a marine alternator charging profile of 60 amps or less.
If this battery will be connected in series, please review Dakota Lithium's Balancing Instructions.
Includes Active BMS Protection
Every Dakota Lithium battery contains a Battery Management System (BMS) that handles automatic cell balancing, low voltage cutoff, high voltage cutoff, short circuit protection and high temperature protection for increased performance and longer life.
BMS can support wiring these batteries in parallel up to 10 units for a 600Ah system.
Cold Temperature Charging Protection
Contains a smart BMS temperature cut-off that prevents charging when cells are below 0°C/32°F to protect the battery.
A Dakota Lithium 10A charger is included or a 20A charger is optional to cut your charging times in half.
All Dakota Lithium batteries are UN38.3 certified. Dakota Lithium's cells are UL1642 certified and have been tested per IEC62133 standards. Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.
