Several grades of commercially-available polyacrylonitrile (PAN)-based carbon fibers have been studied for structural lithium-ion batteries to understand how the sizing, different lithiation rates and number of fibers per tow affect the available reversible capacity, when used as both current collector and electrode, for use in structural batteries. The study shows that at moderate lithiation rates, 100 mA g-1, most of the carbon fibers display a reversible capacity close to or above 100 mAh g-1 after ten full cycles. For most of the fibers, removing the sizing increased the capacity to some extent. However, the main factor affecting the measured capacity was the lithiation rate. Decreasing the current by a tenth yielded an increase of capacity of around 100 for all the tested grades. From the measurements performed in this study it is evident that carbon fibers can be used as the active negative material and current collector in structural batteries.
