Brand Dakota Battery

Built Dakota tough, this 12 volt lithium battery packs a big punch. Engineered with Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePo4) technology this battery has twice the power, half the weight, and lasts 4 times longer than a sealed lead acid battery – providing exceptional lifetime value. 23 Amp hours of capacity provides a full day of power for high amp draw electronics like Garmin fish finders, ice augers, or anything where you need a longer run time. Same performance as our legendary 10 Ah battery, but with 130% more capacity. Replacement for 18Ah & 20Ah SLA batteries including size UB12180, FM12180, 6fm18 and others. LiFePO4 charger recommended.




World beating, best in class, eleven year manufacturer defect warranty.

23 ampere hours. Dakota Lithium batteries provide consistent power for all 23 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.


295 Watts

M6 terminals (posts that screw in). When used in salt water environments we recommend applying a small amount of dielectric grease on the threads of each terminal. It helps extend the lifespan.

7.125 in (181mm) L x 3.03 in (77mm) W x 6.57 in (167mm) H

6.4 lbs (2.9Kg). That’s 60% lighter than a SLA battery.

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.

24 A max continuous, 60 A max pulse (<3 sec). The flat discharge voltage curve provides a 75% bigger capacity then a SLA 23Ah battery. Please note: a single battery is only appropriate for trolling motors with <20 lbs of thrust. For trolling motors with 20 to 45lbs of thrust a single DL 54Ah battery is required. Or you can combine two batteries in parallel to create a 48 amp continuous discharge rate and 46 Ah of capacity. This provides the amps necessary to run the larger motor, increases runtime and lifespan of the battery. CHARGE 12 A max, 14 V max recommended, 15 V max. Please note: this battery should be charged using a LiFePO4 compatible charger. 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. CHARGER SOLD SEPARATELY This battery should be charged using a LiFePO4 compatible charger. A SLA charger may work, but will reduce performance and lifespan of the battery. DROP IN REPLACEMENT Replaces size UB12180, size FM12180, and size 6fm18 SLA batteries with twice the run time and half the weight
