To relieve the pressure of the volume change of SnO2 in lithium-ion batteries, a porous carbon nanosheets/carbon nanotubes (PC/CNT) scaffold was used to host SnO2 as a collector. This novel collector comprised a PC/CNT network. The new PC/CNT composite possessed an excellent loading capacity of SnO2, restrained the volume expansion of SnO2, and prevented its aggregation. The SnO2-PC/CNT electrodes exhibited superb electrochemical performance, with high tin oxide utilization (86.6%), high specific capacity (1761.81 mAh g−1 at 100 mA g−1) and outstanding coulomb efficiency. After 100 cycles, the specific discharge capacity maintained greater than 499.07 mAh g−1, with a coulombic efficiency of 98.93%.
