In this work, $LiMn_2O_4$ and $LiNi_{1/3}Mn_{1/3}Co_{1/3}O_2$ cathode materials are mixed by some specific ratios to enhance the practical capacity, energy density and cycle performance of battery. At present, the most used cathode material in lithium ion batteries for EVs is spinel structure-type $LiMn_2O_4$. $LiMn_2O_4$ has advantages of high average voltage, excellent safety, environmental friendliness, and low cost. However, due to the low rechargeable capacity (120 mAh/g), it can not meet the requirement of high energy density for the EVs, resulting in limiting its development. The battery of $LiMn_2O_4-LiNi_{1/3}Mn_{1/3}Co_{1/3}O_2$ (50:50 wt%) mixed cathode delivers a energy density of 483.5 mWh/g at a current rate of 1.0 C. The accumulated capacity from $1^{st}$ to 150th cycles was 18.1 Ah/g when the battery is cycled at a current rate of 1.0 C in voltage range of 3.2~4.3 V.
