Not really. NiCd and NiMH are optimized for price these days, not
to last long. Li-Ion and Li-Poly are even worse (optimized for power
and price, not taking into account their inherently shorter life).

If you want to have long lasting akkus buy those that are rated for
such use. But they cost a premium. The only alternative are Pb batteries.
Especially the Pb-Gel ones. Those are made to last a couple of years
if not a decade or two before getting a too high internal resistance.

Why does it take years to find the answers to
the questions one should have asked long ago?
