Dakota Lithium DL+12v 135ah Dual Purpose 1000CCA Starter Battery
The ultimate battery in energy density and versatility. 135 Amp Hours of deep cycle Dakota Lithium performance PLUS 1,000 CCA of engine starting power PLUS internal even-heat technology for use in extreme temperatures = unlimited possibilities. Start your car, crank up the car audio, or run your trolling motor, golf cart, or any electronics — this is one battery built to power many passions. Engineered for high performance in rugged and extreme conditions, the DL+ 12V 135Ah battery includes DL’s internal even heating technology that allows for charging and using the battery in extreme temperatures down to -20F. Built to start boat and car engines, the DL+ 12V 135Ah battery also has 135 Amps of charging capacity, allowing you to charge the battery from your vehicle’s alternator. Charges 5X faster than traditional batteries. 60 minutes or less when combined with a 135 Amp charger or alternator.
Exceptional energy density with 5X the power of traditional batteries. 135 Amp Hours (Ah) of capacity engineered to fit inside a group 24 battery case that is 25% smaller than a Dakota Lithium 100 Ah battery.
Engineered with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) technology this battery has 5X the power, half the weight, and lasts 5 times longer than a lead acid battery – providing exceptional lifetime value. Built for dual purpose performance, the DL+ 12V 135Ah battery 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, heavy machinery, golf carts, or any electronics that require a lot of power at one time. In addition, the DL+ 12V 135Ah battery provides the same legendary deep cycle marine performance that Dakota Lithium batteries are known for, giving you lots of power for a long time. This is the most versatile Dakota Lithium battery and includes a terminal adapter kit compatible with most automotive, deep cycle marine, and other deep cycle applications. Easily link in series to create 24V, 36V, or 48V systems. LiFePO4 charger included. Backed up by an 11 year warranty.
Approved for use with Mercury outboard motors and meets the Mercury requirements for lithium starter batteries. Exceeds American Boating and Yachting Council (ABYC) standards for lithium battery use in boats and watercraft. Universal alternator compatibility allows charging of the battery from most marine outboards, car, truck and boat engines.
World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.
135 Ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 135 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.
12.8V (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)
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.
9.5”x 6.9”x 7.75” (242.5x176x197mm) Group 24 equivalent
Group 24 compatible physical dimensions & 24F terminal orientation. Group 34 compatible. 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 compatible. BCI Group GC2. M27-1000 compatible.
1620 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)
27.2 lbs (12.3 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery. 1/2 the weight of a normal car battery.
Up to 80% capacity for 2,500 cycles in recommended conditions. The typical automotive SLA has 500 cycles. Dakota Lithium batteries last so long that the price per use is a fraction of traditional batteries.
IP 67 waterproof rating achieved through robotic liquid welding of the lid and terminals.
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). Internal even-heat technology allows for charging below 32°F. BMS high temp cut off at 167°F / 75°C.
135A max continuous discharge, 1000A max 2 second pulse, 900A max 5 sec pulse. The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity than a 135Ah SLA battery with the same CCA rating.
Recommend for longest life 70A or less (.5C), Peak charge acceptance 165A max for one minute, 200A max BMS cutoff. Max continuous 150A (1C). 14.4V recommended, 15V 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..
Peak charge acceptance 165A max for one minute, 200A max BMS cutoff. Drop in replacement for lead acid and AGM starter batteries for vehicles. Limited to a max alternator size of 150 amps or less per battery (link multiple batteries in parallel for alternators >150 Amps).
340 minutes (RC25 @ 80°F)
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.
Increases performance in extreme cold. When charging the battery in temperatures below 0°C/32°F DL's internal heating element will warm the cells to 0°C/32°F. This increases the lifespan, performance, and efficiency of the battery.
