If you are in North Exumas, why not just sail to Ft. Lauderdale or Miami. It’ll probably save you at least $2,000 on any set of batteries you purchase throughout the islands. It’s just a 3 day sail. Or, Puerto Rico will have options.
I am not going to comment on the battery types you mentioned. Those would not be my first choices for many reasons.

Happy Holidays fellow Amel owners.
I would like to ask the group for advice on obtaining house batteries in Martinique.
I am interested in upgrading my batteries to Firefly or some brand of lithium ion, though I doubt that such options would be available in Martinique (perhaps I am wrong? )
Otherwise, I would need to ship them in, though I understand the import tax is significant.
What have others done in this situation?
Happy New Year.
