Research has been conducted to study the synthesis of nanorod Li4Ti5O12 (LTO) and the effect of Sn nanopowder and activated carbon addition to the battery performances. Firstly, Sol-gel process was conducted to synthesize TiO2 powder which further subjected to hydrothermal process to obtain nanorod structure. Moreover, The Li4Ti5O12 was prepared through solid-state method. Activated carbon were prepared using NaOH 1M as activation agents while Sn nanopowder was added by 10 wt%, 15 wt%, and 20wt%. The powder then characterized by SEM-EDX, XRD, and BET, and the cell performance was tested using CV, CD, and EIS. The impurities such as Rutile TiO2, and Li2TiO3 present. The highest capacity was achieved by 20 wt% Sn addition which value is 192.1 mAh/g.
