There are three types of batteries used in solar battery systems. Traditional lead acid batteries are very similar to those used in automobiles. These are designed to provide reliable energy storage for anywhere between 3-20 years. There are also lithium batteries that have long life cycles and high discharge and recharge rates. And, while less efficient, many systems use NICAD batteries or NIFE batteries.
Solar batteries are designed to be practically maintenance-free. Most require little more than gentle cleaning and regular inspections.
