Dakota Lithium, a U.S battery manufacturer, has signed a three-year partnership with B.A.S.S as a premium sponsor of the Bassmaster Tournament trail and the Official Lithium Battery of Bassmaster through 2025.
“Here at Dakota Lithium, we are proud to be partnering with Bassmaster as the first Official Lithium Battery. Dakota Lithium is the top battery choice of professional anglers. Partnering with the leading professional fishing tournament series just made sense. We are looking forward to joining the elite brands that are supporting the future of fishing,” said Dakota Lithium CEO Andrew A. Jay.
Dakota Lithium currently works with multiple Bassmaster Elite Series pro anglers. Two-time Bassmaster Classic champion Hank Cherry, Greg DiPalma, Austin Felix, Marc Frazier, Brock Mosley, Chad Pipkens, Tyler Rivet, Matt Robertson and Kyle Welcher are all part of the Dakota Lithium pro staff.
“I was the first Bassmaster Elite angler to use Dakota Lithium batteries and have been on the team from the beginning,” said Mosley, who has notched five Top 10 Elite finishes in the past two seasons.
“It is truly amazing to see how far they have come and to see them sponsor the 2023 Bassmaster season.”
Lithium batteries have become an industry standard for competitive fishing, providing twice the usable power at half the weight of traditional batteries. In a quickly growing market, Dakota Lithium has become the brand of choice for professional athletes, primarily due to Dakota Lithium’s performance, reliability, lifespan and best-in-class 11-year warranty.
“This new partnership with Bassmaster and Dakota Lithium shows how Dakota Lithium has become the go-to battery in the marine industry and partnering with Bassmaster is the next step in continuing that dominance,” said Craig Storms, Dakota Lithium national sales representative and pro staff manager.
By harnessing a unique chemistry and their engineering know-how, Dakota Lithium lasts 5-10x longer than traditional batteries, providing lasting value for and reducing e-waste and the impact on our planet.
“We are proud to welcome Dakota Lithium as a new premier partner and look forward to connecting them with anglers and Bassmaster fans,” said B.A.S.S. CEO Chase Anderson.
“Dakota Lithium already works alongside so many anglers at all levels, and we are excited to introduce their long-lasting batteries to our passionate fans over the next several years.”
