Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd. (Changhong) is a Chinese consumer electronics company based in Mianyang, Sichuan,[2] and founded on October 1958. It is the second-largest manufacturer of televisions in China.[3] In 2004, 90% of the television sets exported from China to the United States were made by Changhong.[4]

Another line of products is the manufacture of nickel–iron batteries.

Changhong is the sole manufacturer of batteries for the Chengdu J-10.

In 2008 an offer was reportedly made by AMD for a 15% stake, but was blocked by the Chinese government.
