Built Dakota tough, this single 48V lithium battery with 96 amp hours (Ah) of capacity will help you play longer and go further with twice the run time for your golf cart, electric vehicle, or electric outboard motor, while lasting 4x longer, providing exceptional lifetime value. Built out of our legendary lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells, this battery requires no maintenance or watering, can be installed in any orientation, and can charge 5X faster then lead acid – giving you more time, and more freedom. The best part is this single Dakota Lithium battery weighs 1/4 as much as a set of lead acid golf cart batteries, allowing you to cut 300 lbs or more off your cart. Experience better vehicle handling, less wear & tear, and lower maintenance costs.
With a whopping 5kWh of deep cycle power inside of a single power source, this is the largest battery Dakota Lithium makes and it optimized for deep cycle and marine applications like 48V solar energy storage, 48V electric outboard motors, 48V golf carts, or any 48V application where you need steady power for a long time. Built to endure with deep cycle lithium battery durability, backed by an 11 Year Warranty. A Dakota Lithium 48V 8A charger is included.
- 48V Golf Carts
- 48V Electric Outboard Motors
- 48V Solar Energy Power Systems
- 48V Electric Vehicles
- Ideal for Torqueedo & Elco Outboard Motors
- Great for Club Car, Yamaha, Taylor-Dunn, Polaris, Par Car, Gem Car, Star EV and many others.
This 48 volt single battery is not suitable for EZGO or any cart with a speed controller rated at more than 240 amps. If you are uncertain of your speed controller rating, it is unlikely that only one of these batteries will properly power your cart. See section below for links to higher amperage options.
Motor Controller Compatibility
This single 48V battery will replace a set of 6V, 8V, or 12V batteries in a 48V cart. This battery is suitable for most carts with a max speed of less than 27 mph and a motor controller rated under 240 Amps. If your motor controller is rated 240 Amps or higher, you may need two of these 48V batteries in parallel (some dune buggies, off-road carts, ATVs, and high speed carts fall into this category). You may also explore high amperage 48 volt golf cart batteries in 60Ah or 135Ah packages for these high amp applications.
11 Year Warranty
Best in class, 11 Year manufacturer defect warranty.
96 ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 96Ah'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.
48V (not intended for wiring multiple batteries in series, 48V systems only)
4,915 Watt hours (Wh) per battery (4.9 kWh power system)
M8 bolt terminals with hardware included. Easy to adapt to different connection needs (Max torque 15 ft. lbs).
77 lbs (35Kg). That's 80% lighter than a set of lead acid batteries, saving 300 lbs. of weight.
20.5" x 10.5" x 8.66" (LxWxH)
For carts with a max speed of 23 mph or less expect a battery range of 40 - 60 miles depending on cart model. For carts with a max speed of 27 mph expect a battery range of 30 - 40 miles. Wire 2 units in parallel to double the battery range.
Lifecycles (Battery Lifespan)
Up to 100% capacity for 2,000 recharge cycles (100%DOD), 80% capacity at ≥4,000 recharge cycles (80%DOD), 50% capacity at ≥6,000 (50%DOD - battery half life). 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’s. -20°F min, +120°F max optimal operating temps (battery performs well down to -20°F). Avoid charging below 32°F.
100A max continuous, 200A max pulse for 3-5 minutes. The flat discharge voltage curve provides 75% more useable capacity then a SLA 100Ah battery.
50A max, 57.6V max recommended. Free 48V 8A LiFePO4 charger is included.
Inludes 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.
Add Bluetooth Monitoring
Connect a Victron SmartShunt inline with your negative battery cable and monitor battery data on your phone. Click the link to view details.
Free 48 volt 8 amp LiFePO4 charger included.
How Much Power Do I Need For Solar Panels?
Each battery has 4.9 kWh of power storage. 48V has an efficiency advantage for solar energy systems (google 48V vs 12V for solar energy). 500 - 800 watts of solar panel capacity with a 48V solar charge controller would fully charge this battery daily.
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.
