A facile two-step strategy involving a polyol method and subsequent thermal annealing treatment is successfully developed for the general synthesis of metal oxide/carbon coaxial nanocables. Benefitting from the strong coupling effect, these hybrid nanocables exhibit remarkable lithium storage properties with high capacity, long cycle life and excellent rate capability.
