Doing well. I’ve had two of these for six months now. I don’t discharge them at more than 10 amps and I recharge them on the same day after using them. The are doing well, charging up to about 14V. I’m glad I bought them.

Kenny Bon

Good quality. chained two of them for 24v and placed in an older Think Electric bike. good for 14 miles on full power. charged with original SLA charger.

Dam good Batteries


12 Volt Lithium batteries has been a perfect success! Wired in series. My application for a pair of these 10 Amp Hour, 12 Volt Lithium batteries has been a perfect success! Wired in series, they provide the 24-26 volts needed to power my electric bike. I made a wiring connector that puts the batteries in parallel for charging with my 12-14 Volt auto battery charger, and series when connected to the bike. The folks at Dakota Lithium were very helpful when I asked a question about chargers. They sent my order right away, and it arrived well before I expected. Their low price for a lithium ion battery of this capacity attracted my attention too. Having replaced a pair of similar sized SLA batteries, I can tell you that the performance is awesome! I love the dramatically lighter weight and much greater run time I get with these lithium batteries. After two months of use I have no complaints or disappointments. Great product, great vendor support, and a great price!


FAST Ship, high quality, works great for my 24v ebike, Very Happy I upgraded the SLA Batterys A+++

Jeffrey K

Would buy again in a New York minute. Ordered 4 for use with ultra high wattage 48v ebike–very light in weight and seem sealed well against the elements. Very happy with performance–can’t speak for range as am using them with 1500 watt motor. Friendliest customer service on the planet….. ( they called me to ask if I was happy with product ) would buy again in a New York minute.


3rd set I bought for my 24v ebikes, Way more miles, they work & Charge Great A+

DL Customer

Awesome! I switched out my crappy lead acid batteries that came with my e300s Razor Scooter with a couple Dakota lithiums. I weigh like 245 and it improved my distance traveled from 2 to 5 miles. I was just coasting during mile 5 like “really?”.


So far they perform well. Much less voltage drop than 7/8AH SLA while putting out 200W. Installed these in the Razor Dirt Quad and they charge nicely in a 2 series 24V config, on a standard electronic lead acid charger at 2.5A rate. I have a Watts Up monitor installed and will share the Lead acid vs LFP results soon. When I received them they were near full discharge. They both took exactly 120Wh to recharge until the BMS finished the charge cycle. Used for Razor dirt quad testing with Watts Up.

Muy Bueno!

I put them to a really hard run in my velixor fish flasher and they did really well. Setting them up was easy. I’m going to buy more when the ice firms up.

My testing showed it exceeded advertised capacity at 10.1 Ah with 97% charge efficiency. This battery actually exceeded it’s rated capacity in my tests. I did two full discharge/recharge cycles, and after a full discharge, it took 10.4 amp hours of charge, and after putting those 10.4 amp hours of charge into the battery I was able to pull 10.1 amp hours out. Generally, most batteries are advertised at their “actual”/rated capacity rather than “usable” capacity. For lithium batteries the “usable” capacity is generally only about 80% of the rated/advertised capacity. So I was quite pleased to see that I could pull over 10 amp hours out of this battery without pulling it’s voltage under 11.2 volts. (Dakota Lithium/Clean Republic lists the discharge voltage as being able to go as low as 9.2V, but it’s not good to discharge lithium batteries under 11V generally) For the charge efficiency, see the pictures attached: Putting 10.448 Ah into the battery yields 10.13 Ah out of the battery. 10.13 / 10.448 = 96.95% That’s incredibly efficient. On an SLA battery you’re lucky to hit 80% efficiency and only about 50% of the rated capacity is usable. So while this battery is about 3-4 times more expensive than an SLA of equal “rated” size, this battery is far more efficient, and gives you twice as much “usable” capacity as the equally sized SLA gives you and weighs 1/3 as much. It’s also rated for 2,000 cycles vs the typical 400-500 for an SLA. So over the lifetime of this battery you would need to buy roughly 8 SLA batteries at $25/pop ($200 total) to equal the lifetime usable capacity of this battery at $99.

This type batt seems to work well in UPS. Bought few more for other UPSs. Thx.

Xtra POC battery. Met my expectations for use on my POC.


Love these Batteries! This is my third battery purchase. Used 2 for a 24V scooter, now added a 3rd for a 36v ebike wheel. These things are such an improvement over SLAs! Carrying around 25 lbs of SLAs makes NO sense. At less than 10 lbs for 3 of these the bike feels so much better and if they truly are good for 2000 charges they will save money in the long run. My range is great now and I usually arrive back home with 3 battery indicator lights still lit!! Love them! Dakota Lithium has great customer service if you need them.

DL Customer

Very Good Battery. Well worth the cost. Now that I have a couple of months of use, I can honestly say: You will find this is an impressive battery if your experience has been only with Lead-Acid batteries as mine has been. This battery seems to retain its charge well when left “on shelf”. It has amazing high current output over lead acids, specifically 10 amp drain for 30 minutes w/o significant voltage drop (considering it’s size I’m impressed). No more lead acid batteries for me.

Steve Nelson

Perfect Transaction!!!!!!!!! Fast shipping!!!!!!Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Obrien M.

Works great in my Marcum LX6! Long life over the lead battery.


Brought life back to my UPS battery backup for my computer. The max 20A draw reduces my UPS max load from 600W to ~450 w, but that’s fine for my use. Returned my runtime to about an hour from the 5 minutes my old batteries were down to. The UPS is still bad at estimating time left because the voltage curve isn’t what it expects. So after 20 minutes of predicted runtime, I get another 40 minutes+ while the UPS says 0 minutes remaining. If it all lasts 10 years, it’ll be money well spent.


Excellent battery.. Very light..well worth the money..great power.

I expect to give this 5 stars after I use this battery in my intended application for an emergency ham radio station. I chose a LiFeO4 battery design since this is the safest chemistry of the lithium battery types. This is a powerful battery and I wouldn’t want self induced battery issues with this much potential energy available. The LiFeO4 chemistry battery is much more tolerant of misuse or the potential for self induced fires and is much safer than LiPo chemistry. The LiFeO4 chemistry is much more expensive but worth it to me. Also this chemistry can generally be safely charged with a charger designed for gelled lead acid battery types and the cell matching and equalization is much better than other types. Sealed into a tough case this battery is not subject to handling damage like many of the LiPo batteries that simply put a thin sleeve or shrink wrap over the cells. Such batteries must be handled carefully otherwise any incidental damage can invite risk of fire. This battery has a very substantial casing that will withstand rough handling very well.

Fast shipping and great communication thank you

Expensive But Powerful and Lightweight. So far, so good. Most expensive battery I ever bought, but is light weight and seems to offer a lot of reserve power.

Chris C

really high quality batteries, highly recommend Dakota Lithium, fast shipping

Russell C.

I use this in a ice fishing locator, took 5.25 lbs off of the locator compared with 12 Ah lead acid battery that came with the locator. The lithium battery last as long as I would expect and charges fast.


Exceeds expectations! My 24 vdc mobility scooter motor is 7 years old, with probably a worn commutator. Despite cleaning the motor’s carbon dust out and replacing brushes – the machine wears out new deep cycle gel cells twice as quickly as when it was new. This off-road capable scooter is used to run my 5- off leash, large breed working dogs daily. We chase coyotes at night, the dogs kill possums, and dig up gophers in the vast orchards here in the Central Valley. Big fun. But running out of power ruined my fun. When newer the scooter could go many miles – but with age has run down to half that even with new batteries. The Gel Cells are 50 amp hours – so I thought a pair of these 10 amp hour lithiums would only help get me home in an emergency. SURPRISE! With 2- of these in parallel with the 2- gel cells there has been an amazing transformation. As if by magic the machine now has twice the range it had without these lithium cells. What? 2- little 10- Ah batteries act as if there were new 50 Ah gel cells? I’m very happy! The dogs can have twice as much fun chasing critters at midnight without my fear of being stranded. My knees are worn out to bone on bone so I cannot walk miles home. Cell phone would do no good because there is no one to call who could find us. AMAZING BATTERIES! As funds allow I’ll add more and more of these and ditch the crappy, expensive Gel cells. THANK YOU!

Awesome Battery, my second One, Light weight and lasts a long time, A+++

DL Customer

Work great!


A really great battery for the price. Very happy with accessories, quality and performance.

DL Customer

surprise…actually delivers as advertised. I concur with the tester that did a drain down test to this battery. I was very surprised to find a capacity of over 10AH on two tests with a remarkably high efficiency of recharge as previously reported. I stopped at 10.1AH since the voltage dropped to 10.2 volts under load at 4.6A drain and I did not want to excessively drain the battery. I bought the battery as a standby electric outboard battery in a sailboat. The LIPO4 has a great storage life as compared to lead acid as long as it is stored without a full charge. I will report back later on how it works out. So far I am impressed. Vastly exceeded my expectations. I used a rather sophisticated test setup that is capable of measuring amp-hours.

super light for application, battery tested out of the box w/ a charge 14.73v

Mark Holland

Nice light SLA battery equivalence. Fits great in my fish flashers.


Great Batteries and Great service!!! I’ve been using 4 of these for a aeration system in a pond running on solar. Flawless is a understatement. I have turned several people on to these. This is really a great deal for a great battery!!!!


This battery far exceeds my expectations. It is light and very powerful. It charges quickly, and runs my Garmin EchoMap Chirp 73CV all day. I plan on getting a couple more to put into my Marcum LX7 and VX1i for this winter

Sarah Johnson

Awesome price and really good batteries. Thank you.


Super fast and effortless shopping with Dakota Lithium. I will definitely do business again. Thank you!


This battery is Amazing!!!

satisfied user!

I bought two for eZip 500 scooter. Scooter’s charger is designed for SLA batteries (2 12-volt batteries wired in series, 24-volt charger system plugs into the scooter), but since these have BMS that allows SLA charger to be used, I thought they would work. Charge and run fine in my two weeks of testing. Definitely more total energy capacity than the SLA (more runtime), but no more power for the uphill climbing. Overall a decent choice even if a bit more pricey than the SLA. I am expecting them to last much longer than SLA, but only time will tell if that is true.


I have not used them yet but I am still giving 5 star just based on my research and reputation of this battery

Reg Bowyer

Running a 27 watt LED headlight on my MB. 8 to 9 hours of runtime. 4 to 5 hours recharge with CR supplied charger. Very pleased with performance.

Vinny Ferreri

WOW! Lets me just say WOW! I have been using electronics on my kayak for 6 years now. Started with the simple 4 in Garmin, then a 5 inch, and now a 9inch Garmin 93sv, side scan, gps, down scan and sonar. Needless to say, the bigger the unit the more battery I needed. Used a 12v game feeder battery for a long time, but as the units grew, the battery wasn’t strong enough. I upgraded to a 14AH Duracell, but it was so heavy and also barley made it through the day. I finally decided to try a Dakota Lithium 10AH. I cant explain how pleased I am. It runs my unit for at least 2 full fishing days on the water. It may go more, but I have not let it run dead yet. Not only that, but it is at least half the weight of a standard game feeder battery, If you fish as serious as me, 30-40 tournaments a year, any weight you can shave off the kayak helps!! Also, knowing I don’t have to worry, in hour 9, about my unit going dead is such a stress relief. Upgrading to this battery is the best upgrade I have made in a while!! Super pleased.

Happy owner of two Dakota Lithium batteries. I’ve used two Dakota Lithium 10ah battery for two years now. In the winter in my ice fishing electronics, and in the summer to power my kayak electronics. For those that ice fish, and stay very mobile, hole hopping with their electronics, this battery can’t be beat. Half the weigh of a 7ah SLA, and much better performance. I no longer need to worry about the life of my flasher through a day. My LX7 will run at full brightness from sunrise to sunset, and still have enough to fish several hours into the night. In addition to their great product, Dakota Lithium has graciously assisted me in sponsorship for an ice fishing tournament that I direct. They have been nothing but helpful with any concerns or issue with their product, and I will continue to support them in the future with my battery needs.

Dakota lithium’s simply the best !! Hello everyone I am writing this review from my own experience with Dakota lithium batteries. I am an avid Ice fisherman as well as an open water fisherman. I have been using Dakota lithium 10ah batteries for a year now . I can’t stress enough the weight difference and run time of these lithium batteries compared to the traditional 7ah lead acid batteries. I use these batteries in my flashers also in my power boxes. Here’s an example of the amazing run time I personally got with one 10ah Dakota in my power box. I literally used every function on my power box for 5 days straight without a charge . Function’s on my power box (Bluetooth speakers,usb ports ,12v charging port,glow cup, two power posts,12v led lights ) Thank you Jack Kwiatek

Brad Hole

Dakota Lithium Batteries are a cost effective solution for power on the go. I struggled to find the right battery to run a 7″ & 9″ Lowrance fish finder on my kayak that wouldn’t “sink the boat”. Dakotas batteries are a fraction of the weight of traditional SLA batteries and give me the power I need full a full day of fishing and then some…

Stephen Denham

Ideal off-grid. I’ve used this battery for over a year to power a small camping fridge/freezer. I keep it charged with a solar panel and LiFEPO4 regulator. It’s been very reliable and copes with some tough conditions here in the desert SW. I did have one problem with charging and their customer support was extremely helpful in resolving the issue. Excellent customer service.

Chris Drouillard

It works. Use in ice fishing flasher and works great- lighter than SLA battery and lasts twice as long.


Batteries charge quickly and seem to last well.
