Lithium-ion battery based on LiMn2O4/Li4Ti5O12 materials was assembled for the first time. The cathode and anode of this battery are prepared with the aqueous combined binder poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene: polystyrene sulfonate/carboxymethylcellulose (without polyvinylidene fluoride). The capacity of the LiMn2O4/Li4Ti5O12 battery was found to be 75 mA h g–1 at 0.1 C and 55 mA h g–1 at 1 C. A 95% capacity was retained after 100 charge-discharge cycles. The batteries demonstrated a high Coulombic efficiency close to 100%. Scanning electron microscopy demonstrated that using the conducting binder poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene: polystyrene sulfonate/carboxymethylcellulose provides formation of dense compact layers of electrode materials with good adhesion to the substrate. The electrode structure remains maintained after 100 charge-discharge cycles.
