One question I see again and again (and have gotten tired of answering) is why use lithium-ion instead of lead-acid. This must come up at least once a week on facebook.

There are no definite answer to the LA vs Li question. It depends on the user and scenario. its like BMW vs Mercedes.

We can describe them but we cannot tell users if either or is better as a general answer.

There are good reasons for and against lead acid batteries. I don't think this is suitable for the FAQ. The question implies that you should choose lithium over lead acid, I think this is the wrong approach. You shouldn't do that. You should choose whatever is better suited for the given situation.

If we put something like this into the FAQ then it has to be rephrased, like "What's the difference between lithium and lead acid batteries?".

I think the hard part is explaining that not all batteries are the same, and Li-ion is fundamentally different from the chemical batteries we've been using for the past 120 years. Comparing stats, lead acid is only superior in three; initial cost (vs new lithium cells), cold weather performance, and overall system complexity. When you take into account that most of us are re-purposing used cells at very low cost, lead acid looks even less appealing.

To be honest, when reading this I get the feeling that you might be misjudging the situation and underestimating the value of lead acid batteries, even by year 2019 standards.

But still, make your suggestion. If you think that you have something valuable to add to the FAQ then put something together and we will talk about it. Don't be disappointed though if it doesn't make it into the FAQ in the end.
