Hierarchical networks with highly interconnected V2O5 nanosheets (NSs) anchored on skeletons of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are prepared by a facile hydrothermal treatment and a following calcination for the first time. Benefiting from these unique structural features, the as-prepared CNT@V2O5 material shows dramatically excellent electrochemical performance with remarkable long cyclability (137–116 mA h g–1 after 400 cycles) at various high rates (20 C to 30 C) and very good rate capability for highly reversible lithium storage. The excellent electrochemical performance suggests its promising use as a cathode material for future lithium-ion batteries.
