Looking for Lithium house bank experiences

I am working the numbers regarding transitioning to a lithium-based house bank for the boat. While the up-front costs are shockingly high, the actual TCO (total cost of ownership) isn't that bad considering the lifespan.

I really like the idea of being able to charge them quickly using my genset and not having to run the generator for extended periods at light loads as I would with lead-acid batteries.

I'd be very interested in hearing from sailnetters who have actually installed and used Lithium batteries on their boat and what their experiences are regarding performance and longevity.
