Which would be best, Lead Acid or Lithium for solar storage?

I must replace depleted battery bank on my solar system. I now have worn out lead acid batteries and I’m contemplating replacement with lithium batteries. The lead acid are cheaper batteries but are only guaranteed for 5 years, whereas the lithium batteries, although more expensive, are environmentally safe, recyclable and last 15-20 years. I must make a decision soon, as I’m powering my home at this moment on a gas generator.

    If you can afford the lithium, go with them. It would save you money in the long run.

    Lithium solar batteries have a much higher cycle life than lead acid batteries do, so I would go for them.
