Power play: China’s submarines use lithium

China plans to upgrade its conventional submarines with lithium-ion batteries, which could significantly increase the combat and survivability of its fleet.

This month, the South China Morning Post reported that China’s conventional submarine fleet may soon be powered by lithium-ion batteries, capitalizing on technological advances in the country’s electric vehicle (EV) industry, currently the world’s largest.

The report notes that China produces three-quarters of the world’s electric vehicle batteries, giving it a leading position in battery technology.
