pocket plate batteries

I am looking to use a 100-200ah battery for my inverter. There will be a charge and discharge cycle everyday. So in terms of safety, life cycles, cost, rugged usage, rapid charging and discharging, which is the best battery to use ?
The only sensible solution is lead acid .... Lithium are good for high power, low weight applications, but cost a lot.

Don't forget you'll need new ones every few years, and you'll be able to sell lead acid for scrap , perhaps 25% of the cost of new, other battery types have no scrap value.

I suggest you get a 50-100AHr battery first, you may find this is enough, if it isn't you can always buy another.
good call, if you can swing the price a 50-100AHr lithium battery wouldn't be a bad choice either.
