Dakota Lithium Plus 280 Ah 12v Lifepo4 Dual Purpose Battery + Free Shipping & Lifetime Customer Support

When you go off the grid during a Dakota winter you need to be prepared for all that mother nature can throw at you. With the DL+ 12V 280 Ah battery we built our most compact, and powerful battery yet — ready for long expeditions in your RV, extended ocean voyages in your boat, or plenty of power for your off grid system. Engineered for maximum energy density, this battery has 280 Amp Hours of capacity in a waterproof battery case the size of a single 100 Amp Hour battery. That’s 6X the amount of usable power of a single group 31 AGM battery. Plus, up to 1,000 cold cranking amps of engine starting power, making this battery the ultimate single battery solution for boats, RVs, or any vehicle where you need a house battery that can jump start your engine.

Built out of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) technology and reinforced with a ruggedized marine spec plastic case, this is a battery built to last. With a lifespan of 5,000 charge cycles this battery will last up to 6 times longer than your typical AGM battery – providing exceptional value over time. Optimized for marine/boating, solar energy, RVs & electric vehicles. LiFePO4 optimized charger included. 11 year warranty. This is our original 100Ah battery, re-engineered with 180% more capacity in a similar sized case.

Dakota Lithium Plus Battery Specifications

  • WARRANTY: Best in Class 11 Year Warranty. That is 10 years more warranty then most lead acid batteries.
  • STORAGE CAPACITY: 280 Ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 280 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.
  • COLD CRANKING AMPS: 1,000 CCA is adequate to start most boat and large vehicle engines
  • ENERGY: 3360Wh
  • VOLTAGE: 12.8 Volts (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)
  • SIZE: 14.6"x 7.7"x 10.75" (370×195×274mm). Height is to the top of the terminals.
  • GROUP SIZE 31 & 8D: Group Size 31 and Marine 8D size compatible
  • WEIGHT 65 lbs (29.5Kg)
  • LIFESPAN/LIFECYCLES Up to 80% capacity for 4,000 cycles in recommended conditions, 70% capacity at 5,000 recharge cycles. Half-life (50% capacity) of 6,000 - 7,000 re-charge cycles (Typical SLA has 500 cycles). Backed up by an 11 year warranty.
  • DISCHARGE 200A max continuous, 300A max 10-second pulse, 1,000A max 2-sec CCA pulse. LiFePO4 chemistry has a flat voltage curve, meaning this battery will maintain a voltage of >12V for the full discharge cycle in most applications.
  • CHARGE <200 A standard charge, 300A max charge current for <60 sec. Included is a LiFePO4 compatible charger. A SLA charger may work, but will reduce performance and lifespan of the battery. Even heat technology allows for charging below 32'F. Internal even-heat technology allows for charging below 0°C/32°F
  • OPERATING TEMPERATURE 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..
  • INTERNAL EVEN-HEAT TECHNOLOGY 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.
  • SAFE & RELIABLE Includes active BMS protection circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff, high voltage cutoff, short circuit protection and high temperature protection for increased performance and longer life
  • TERMINALS AND POSTS M8 bolt size included. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.)
  • MARINE GRADE & WATERPROOF Max IP65 water resistance rating. Appropriate for marine environments, not submersible.
  • CERTIFICATIONS All batteries are UN38 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.
  • ISO 9001:2015 Dakota Lithium is ISO Certified per 9001:2015 standards, and select models are produced in ISO 14001 certified facilities.
  • FREE LIFEPO4 CHARGER INCLUDED 12V 20A charger included ($299 value). Dakota Lithium 12V batteries should be charged at 14.4 volts, higher than AGM or lead acid. Lead acid chargers will work, but will only charge the battery to 80% of capacity.

Suitable For:

  • Boating & Sailboat Batteries
  • Rvs
  • Off Grid Energy Storage
  • Vans & Campers
  • Home Energy Storage
  • Solar Storage
  • Diy Powerwalls
