A common battery platform made of inorganic nanotubes is proposed and developed. Sponge-like papers of conductive carbon nanotubes and insulative boron nitride nanotubes are used as current collector and separator, respectively. The electrode/separator stack, enlarging active material content to 93.6% and functioning without any problem after heating at 500 °C, opens a door for lighter and safer batteries.
