Dakota Lithium | 48V Golf Cart Battery Set
Built Dakota tough, this 48V (volt) lithium battery set will help you play longer with twice the run time for your golf cart or electric vehicle, while lasting 4x longer, providing exceptional lifetime value.
Built out of our legendary lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) cells, this battery set requires no maintenance or watering, can be installed in any orientation, and can charge 5X faster then lead acid – giving you more time, and more freedom on and off the green.
The best part is a set of Dakota Lithium weighs 1/4 as much as a set of lead acid golf cart batteries, allowing you to cut 300 lbs or more off your cart. Experience better golf cart handling, less wear & tear, and lower maintenance costs. Drop in replacement for most 48V golf carts. Free 48V 8A LiFePO4 charger included!
New battery package combines 4 of our award winning 12V 60Ah DL+ or 12V 135Ah DL+ dual purpose cranking batteries in series to create a 48V system capable of 1,000 Cold Cranking Amps — enough to start your car engine, and more then enough power for most golf carts.
Other brands of lithium batteries in the past have had issues with the battery shutting off because their golf cart needed more amps then the battery could provide. By using automotive technology the DL+ line of batteries provides both the high power needed for even the most rugged of golf carts, while also providing 10 to 20+ miles (60Ah) or 40 to 60+ miles (135Ah) of lasting deep cycle performance.
Battery range varies depending on the size of golf cart, the size of the cart’s motor, and terrain.
Please note, if you are uncertain about the size of your carts motor or motor controller then the DL+ 135Ah battery (50 mile option) is highly recommended. The DL+ 135Ah battery is the best solution since it is compatible with even the largest motor controllers.

Features / Specs
11 YEAR WARRANTY
World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.
Choose 60 or 135 Ampere hours (Ah). Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 60 or 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.
51.2V (four 12.8V batteries to be wired in series). This set is intended for 48V applications. (Dakota Lithium 12V batteries can be used in series for up to 48V systems)
720 Watt-hours (Wh) per battery
F12 terminals (posts that screw in). Easy to adapt to different connection needs. (Max torque 15 ft. lbs.) (Max 5 ft. lbs. if using included terminal post adapters)

16.5 lbs (7.5 Kg). 65% lighter than a SLA or lead battery. OR 27.2 lbs (12.3 Kg) per battery for the 135Ah
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’s. -20°F min, +120°F max optimal operating temps (battery performs well down to -20°F). Avoid charging below 32°F.
100A max continuous, 650A max pulse 10 second pulse, 1,000 CCA per battery (a single DL+ battery has the power to start your car). The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a comparable SLA battery.
MOTOR CONTROLLER LIMIT
The 25 mile 60Ah battery is compatible with motor controllers up to 400A and can handle up to 650 Amps of in rush current. The 60 mile 135Ah battery has a 400 Amp max for the motor controller. If you do not know how many amps your golf cart's motor uses then we recommend the 60 mile battery. It is compatible with nearly all golf cart motors on the market.
50A max, 14V.4V recommended, 15V max. Free 48V 8A LiFePO4 charger included. A SLA charger may work, but will reduce performance and lifespan of the battery.
INCLUDES ACTIVE BMS PROTECTION
Contains a circuit that handles cell balancing, low voltage cutoff, high voltage cutoff, short circuit protection and high temperature protection for increased performance and longer life. A LiFePO4 battery charger is required to turn the battery back on after a BMS cut off.
COLD WEATHER PROTECTION
Excellent performance and use down to -20°F. Avoid charging below 32°F. The DL+ batteries include a cold temperature charging protection cut off
The DL+ 135Ah (60 mile set) has internal heating for charging in temperatures below 0°C/32°F. Optimal for winter warriors.
Free 48V 8A and 12V 10A LiFePO4 charger included. Dakota Lithium 48V batteries in series should be charged at 57.6 volts higher than AGM or lead acid. Lead acid chargers will work, but will only charge the battery to 80% of capacity.
Twice the power?
Yes! Here at Dakota Lithium we build all of our batteries with lithium iron phosphate technology which has many distinct advantages over traditional batteries. Including 60% less weight, a charging speed that is up to 5X faster, and a significantly longer lifespan (5-10 years longer on average). One of the most noticeable advantages however is the flat voltage curve. Unlike a lead acid battery where the voltage drops as you use the battery a Dakota Lithium battery has a steady voltage for 99% of the battery's charge. That means you get all the power down to the last drop and double the usable power of traditional batteries.
Are Lithium batteries safe?
Dakota Lithium batteries are 100% safe & reliable. Our signature chemistry, Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4), does not contain rare earth elements (like Cobalt) or heavy metals, is non-toxic, including no lead or acid, is non-corrosive, does not off gas, requires no watering or maintenance, can be placed in any orientation, and unlike other lithium batteries will not explode or catch fire. In addition, each Dakota Lithium battery is protected from over heating, over charging, and short circuiting, by a battery management system (BMS) microchip that also extends the lifespan and is contained in a rugged, waterproof case (although enough water can conduct electricity between the terminals, so don't submerse the battery). For best performance & reliability we recommend using a LiFePO4 charger.
How do I charge a lithium battery?
Dakota Lithium batteries perform best when charged by a lithium compatible charger. Lead acid or SLA chargers, on-board chargers for AGM batteries, or other non-lithium chargers will charge a Dakota Lithium battery but only to 70-80% of capacity. This is because Dakota Lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) technology charges and is full at a higher voltage then traditional batteries (Dakota Lithium charges at 14.4 Volts). Chargers with a lithium battery setting or designed for lithium will charge at the appropriate voltage. See our full catalog of LiFePO4 battery chargers here. All batteries 54Ah and larger include a free LiFePO4 compatible charger. For troubleshooting tips download the Dakota Lithium battery user manual here.
Will cold weather affect my battery?
Your Dakota Lithium battery will discharge normally between a range of -20F and 120F (-29C to 49C). DL batteries are commonly used among ice fishers for their flashers and ice augers, so they are quite resilient and are frequently used in cold climates. In cases of extreme cold however, it is recommended that the batteries be insulated. We also do not recommend charging our batteries below freezing temperatures. If you are planning to regularly charge your battery below freezing temperatures we recommend the DL+ 12V 135Ah battery which has an internal heating element and is optimal for use in cars, trucks, RVs, off grid solar, and any application where the battery will be charged regularly in extremely cold environments (like a North Dakota winter).
Can I use this to start my car/boat engine?
Our DL+ line of batteries have 1000cca of engine starting power plus the same legendary deep cycle capabilities of all Dakota Lithium batteries. That means you can use them for starting a boat, car or truck engine. Our standard deep cycle batteries do not have this cold cranking ability and can not be used for a starting battery.
What Trolling Motor Battery do you recommend?
Dakota Lithium is a proud sponsor of over 200+ professional athletes in the fishing industry. Here's batteries sizes recommended by our pros depending on the size of your trolling motor: Motor Thrust / Max Amp Draw (A) @ Voltage (V) / Recommended Battery
What battery do I need for my RV or Camper Van?
The industry standard house battery size used in most RVs, Campers, and #VanLife builds is the DL 12V 100Ah Battery. This is a drop in replacement for AGM and most lead acid batteries. If you are charging off your engine's alternator we recommend a Victron DC-DC smart charger. If charging off solar panels we recommend a Victron Smart Solar charge controller, or if you have a solar charge controller choose the lithium setting. A handy size chart for number of batteries needed by size of RV is available here.
