In this paper, the morphology, the conformation, and the electrochemical performance of TiO2 nanotubes and LiFePO4 have been studied by using scanning electron microscope, XRD, and charge/discharge cycles. The electrochemical tests comprised low rate cycling, cycling at C rate, and cycling at different rates. This work was finalized to the fabrication of lithium-ion batteries based on the TiO2/LiFePO4 redox couple. Battery cells were assembled and electrochemical tests were performed to evaluate cell capacity, power, and energy. Further tests were carried out to evaluate the capacity retention as a function of cycle number and discharge current. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
