11 YEAR WARRANTY
World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.
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.
ENGINE STARTING POWER
Rated to 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps (CCA) of engine starting power. Suitable for marine, automotive, and other applications. 1/4-1/2 the weight of a normal car battery.
9.5”L x 6.9” W x 7.44” H (242.5mm x 176mm x 189 mm) Group 24 equivalent
GROUP SIZE 24
Group 24 equivalent for physical dimensions & terminal location. Cranking power (CCA rating) & usable deep cycle capacity is much higher than a lead-acid battery of the same group size.
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.
The terminal layout for this first production batch has the positive (+) on the left and the negative (-) on the right. Please check your wiring harness for length.
16.5 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.
100 A max continuous discharge, 750A max 2 second pulse, 650A max 5 sec pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 50Ah battery.
Recommend for longest life 60A or less (1C), Max continuous 80A (1.5C). 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 most mid-sized vehicles. Can be charged by an engine's alternator at 80 Amps or less. For very large alternators with alternators >100Amps (Diesel trucks, large boat engines) a DC-DC charger is recommended to protect the battery and ensure a longer lifespan.
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'F/C and protects 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.
DUAL PURPOSE USE
Multi-purpose use as a deep cycle battery and/or as a starter battery for starting gasoline engines.
10A LiFePO4 charger included
