Abstract NiCo$_{2}$O$_{4}$ microellipsoids have been synthesized by a rheological-phase hydrothermal method to obtain the precursors followed by annealing at 450°C for 4 h. The effects of different hydrothermal temperatures (140°C to 180°C) on the morphologies and electrochemical properties of the final product were systematically investigated. NiCo$_{2}$O$_{4}$ microellipsoids synthesized at 180°C exhibited the best electrochemical properties, with high reversible capacity (921 mAh g$^{−1}$ at current density of 100 mA g$^{−1}$) and good cycling stability (820 mAh g$^{−1}$ even after 100 cycles), compared with other samples. They also delivered discharge capacity of 586 mAh g$^{−1}$ at relatively high current density of 800 mA g$^{−1}$. The remarkable electrochemical performance of the NiCo$_{2}$O$_{4}$ microellipsoids can be attributed to their high surface area. These results indicate that NiCo$_{2}$O$_{4}$ microellipsoids could be a promising electrode material for lithium-ion batteries.
