New material compositions with new electrode designs have the serious potential to improve the energy per weight and volume at reduced cost for lithium ion batteries. Herein, the advantage and disadvantage of electrode materials for LIBs were investigated in both half and full cells. It was found high capacity materials like silicon anode and Li-rich cathode provide higher specific capacity in mAh/g. In full cell configuration Graphite/Li-rich cathode had 92mAh/g specific capacity after 100 cycles at C/2. (C) 2020 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
