The PL8 determines if the power source is a battery or power supply, it does not know what chemistry the battery is. The PL8 currently assumes Lead-Acid of 12 or 24V and will stop regenerative discharge at a certain voltage when it determines that the battery is full. You can adjust this voltage a little, but I think the max is around 13/26V if I recall correctly. An 8S LiFe would be a good substitute.

I've not done charge/discharge cycles while charging the lead-acid battery, but I read about people doing it all the time, so you should be fine on that front.
