Abstract: The rational design of previously unidentified materials that could realize excellent electrochemical‐controlled optical and charge storage properties simultaneously, are especially desirable and useful for fabricating smart multifunctional devices. Here, a facile synthesis of a 1D π–d conjugated coordination polymer (Ni‐BTA) is reported, consisting of metal (Ni)‐containing nodes and organic linkers (1,2,4,5‐benzenetetramine), which could be easily grown on various substrates via a scalable chemical bath deposition method. The resulting Ni‐BTA film exhibits superior performances for both electrochromic and energy storage functions, such as large optical modulation (61.3%), high coloration efficiency (223.6 cm2 C−1), and high gravimetric capacity (168.1 mAh g−1). In particular, the Ni‐BTA film can maintain its electrochemical recharge‐ability and electrochromic properties even after 10 000 electrochemical cycles demonstrating excellent durability. Moreover, a smart energy storage indicator is demonstrated in which the energy storage states can be visually recognized in real time. The excellent electrochromic and charge storage performances of Ni‐BTA films present a great promise for Ni‐BTA nanowires to be used as practical electrode materials in various applications such as electrochromic devices, energy storage cells, and multifunctional smart windows.
