Summary Lithium metal has been deemed as the most attractive anode due to its high theoretical capacity and low anode potential. Unfortunately, its development still faces various challenges, including dendritic Li growth and low Coulombic efficiency. Here, we demonstrate that a light-weight, flexible, and free-standing 3D hollow carbon fiber (3D-HCF) container with high electroactive surface area can significantly reduce local current density and improve the Li deposition behavior. Li is… CONTINUE READING
