Lithium Ion DC Battery vs Conventional

Hi,

Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of using lithium ion batteries as deep cycle house batteries on a cruising yacht? Would like to know the pro's and cons as I need to replace the two 300 Amp Hours batteries onboard.

Thanks Anthony

There are serveral threads on this forum. Enough to read to keep you busy for many days. Just search for LiFePo or LFP.
