In this paper, we present the results of electrochemical characterisation of a Li[Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3]O2 cathode material prepared by the solution combustion synthesis. Initially, [CoMnNi]Ox powder was obtained by combustion of cobalt, nickel and manganese nitrate solution with glycine or both glycine and citric acid. Li[Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3]O2 was then synthesised by annealing of the mixed oxide powder impregnated with lithium nitrate at 920–970°C. The discharge capacity and the capacity retention of the Li[Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3]O2 cathodes were found to be 141–149 and 131–137 mAh• g-1 for C/10 and C/2 rates, respectively. LISP-50 (lithium ion sealed prismatic) batteries with the Li[Ni1/3Co1/3Mn1/3]O2 cathode demonstrated during their testing that energy loss did not exceed 30% after 2000 cycles at the utilisation of 70%
