Introducing The DL+ line of dual purpose batteries: the most versatile and powerful batteries ever from Dakota Lithium. These automotive, starting and deep cycle batteries are incredibly energy dense with ⅓ of the weight of lead acid batteries of the same capacity and 3X to 6X the usable power.
The DL+ line comes in a group 24 size 12V 60 Ah battery , a group 24 12V 135 Ah battery, and a group 31 12V 280 Ah battery.
What are dual purpose batteries?
Dual purpose batteries are the most versatile lithium batteries. A dual purpose battery can both start an engine and run deep cycle electronics. The Dakota Lithium Plus line of batteries provides 1000 CCA (cold cranking amps) to start up your engine, while also delivering Dakota Lithium’s legendary capacity and deep cycle marine battery performance that will keep your trolling motors, electronics, and power systems running longer. DL+ batteries have a lot of power, making them perfect for your golf cart or electric vehicle. Or for starting your car or boat, and still have enough power for all your electronics, lights, depth finders, etc., and give you peace of mind. The greatest versatility in a battery, the DL+ has many more uses such as in recreational vehicles and van builds, car audio systems, off-grid homes, or to replace any 12V SLA battery.
Dakota Lithium batteries provide exceptional lifetime value, backed up by our 11-year warranty.
Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) technology in our batteries is designed to discharge to almost 0%, while traditional batteries’ maximum recommended depth of discharge is only 50%. The technology’s flat discharge curve provides you with constant power throughout use, until you need to charge your battery again. Charge your battery faster than ever before, DL+’s ultra-fast charging ability allows it to take a charge rate of up to 1C (60A max). The batteries’ low self-discharge rate lets you store them for long periods with barely any power wasted. All our batteries include a 12V Dakota Lithium charger.
Dual Purpose DL+ 12V 60Ah Batteries
The high power density DL+ 12V 60Ah battery is the first of its kind, a starter deep cycle battery, in a small 9.5”x 6.9”x 7.44” package. The DL+ 60Ah has more CCA than a 60 lbs Truck starting battery, and lasts longer than a 50 lbs deep cycle battery while weighing less than 17 lbs!
Reliably start your car or boat’s engine, or run a 45 lbs trolling motor at full power for over 2 hours with just one DL+ 12V 60Ah battery. Easily wire DL+ batteries in parallel for your 12V, 24V, 36V, and 48V applications. Compatible with golf cart controllers rated up to 400A, DL+ batteries will give you a boost in performance and significantly cut your weight to unlock your cart’s full capabilities.
The DL+ 60Ah directly charges from any stator or alternator outputting up to 80A. Use it to effortlessly start your boat’s motor and keep all your electronics going as long as you are, or to always keep your audio system cranking, Dakota Lithium Batteries will not leave you stranded.
Active BMS protection keeps your battery safe and prevents it from charging below 32’F.
For charging in extreme temperatures check out the DL+ 12V 135Ah battery.
The DL+ 12V 60Ah battery is also available inside the Powerbox+ 60, a waterproof solar generator and mobile power station that includes an inverter for plugging in your household electronics like a lap top, monitor or mobile office.
Dual Purpose DL+ 12V 135Ah Batteries
The DL+ 12V 135Ah battery is like nothing you have seen before. Not only is the DL+ 135Ah a starter and deep cycle battery, it also has an even internal heating element to easily charge it in extreme temperatures down to -20F! Experience unprecedented density, in a small group 24 size equivalent pack. Capable of starting your car or truck with 1000 CCA, but instead of batteries that can weigh more than 70 lbs, the feature packed DL+ 135Ah battery weighs in at just 27.2 lbs!
Designed as a drop-in replacement for lead-acid batteries, you can directly charge the DL+ 135 from any alternator or stator with a charging profile of up to 135A. Easily wire up to 4 – 135Ah DL+ batteries to transform your golf cart or boat’s performance. The deeper depth of discharge, flat discharge curve, and the ability to charge your battery in less than 60 mins are sure to elevate your experience to new levels. Active BMS protection will keep your batteries safe from any low and high voltages, keep your cells balanced, and give you the best lifespan and performance. We recommend using an isolation fuse when wiring in parallel! Even though we have not had any parallel problem reports from our larger batteries, we always advise erring on the side of caution.
The DL+ 12V 135 Ah battery includes a Dakota Lithium’s even heat technology for charging the battery in extreme cold. This innovative technology uses the energy from the charger to heat the battery cells to the optimal charging temperature prior to charging. This allows for charging in temperatures down to -20F, making this battery the top choice for cabins, RVs, boats, ice fishing shanties, or any application where you will spend time in the cold.
The DL+ 12V 135 Ah battery is also available inside the Powerbox+ 135, a waterproof solar generator and mobile power station that includes an inverter for plugging in your household electronics like a lap top, monitor or mobile office.
Dual Purpose DL+ 12V 280 Ah Batteries
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.
