Every coin has two sides: The effects of nitrogen dopants with different configurations in carbon on K-ion storage are revisited under similar nitrogen doping levels to guide future design of anodes. Edge-N provides enhanced ion adsorption, contributing to higher capacity but mostly at the high voltage (vs. K+/K) range. Graphitic-N endows carbon network with improved conductivity but harvest weaker adsorption of K-ions, even inferior to that of bare graphitic carbons.
