Dakota Lithium 12V 100Ah Deep Cycle Battery
Description and Application: Dakota Lithium has led the charge in providing adequate and dependable portable lithium power. But it doesn’t stop there. At half the weight and providing up to four-times the power when compared to a traditional lead acid battery, the company also offers a 100Ah deep cycle that can be linked in parallel to run even the most demanding electric trolling motors in the 24-, 36- and 48-volt range. The large battery will support all-day power in your boat or RV without question. But due to high demand the next batch of these batteries ships March 15.
Staff Perspective: The hype is real, folks. Lithium batteries are here to stay, and bring a level or reliability that anglers need to invest in. They are not cheap, but they will outlast any traditional lead acid version. The up-front investment is substantial, but as time goes on you’ll actually save money—the long-life factor alone is worth the reduced stress of maintaining and buying new batteries. All that to say, the 11-year warranty speaks for itself and I’m changing over 100%.
