China is the world’s largest consumer of lithium batteries for five years

The Research Institute of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology recently released the 2021 China Lithium Battery Industry Development Index White Paper.

This white paper shows that the development of the lithium battery industry in China is experiencing rapid growth. In the fourth quarter of 2021, the index reached 307.6. If we compare it with 2017, then this value is three times higher. The data show that since the fourth quarter of 2017, the overall development index of the lithium battery industry in China has shown a steady upward trend.

China is the world's largest consumer of lithium batteries for five years

In 2021, the scale of China’s industry has increased significantly. The lithium battery market reached 324 GWh, four times more than in 2017. China has been the world’s largest consumer market for lithium batteries for five consecutive years. Looking at the data for the end of 2021, China saw a significant increase in battery production by almost 70%. The country ranks sixth in the top ten global manufacturers of lithium batteries. Many components are sourced from China, and the demand for lithium batteries is huge.

High demand for electric vehicles also plays in China’s favor. It is reported that in the coming years, this will contribute to the development of the battery industry. Rising demand and supply are a powerful force driving the electrical transformation of the global automotive industry.

Investment in the country is gradually expanding in southwest China. Apparently, the southwestern region has the richest minerals. The list of minerals includes lithium and phosphorus. There are also large reserves of phosphate rock in Yunnan, Guizhou and Sichuan. They account for more than 40% of the country’s total capacity.

Investment is likely to continue in the coming years. Unless new technology emerges, we will see a trend towards lithium batteries over the next few years. There are many companies trying to use alternative resources such as graphene, but so far none of them have progressed enough to become commercial.

Samsung will remember how to make smartphones with removable batteries

The Samsung Galaxy XCover6 Pro smartphone will offer not only a very well-protected case, but also an ultra-rare feature in the form of a removable battery.

Earlier renders that appeared on the Web hinted at a removable back cover, but now the instruction manual has become available, where this is confirmed.

Slots for SIM cards will be located in the old fashioned way under a removable cover. To install or remove cards, you will need to remove the battery.

The smartphone will also receive a headphone jack, which is located on the top edge.

Recall, according to available data, the device will be based on SoC Snapdragon 778G. He will also receive 6 GB of RAM, a 6.5-inch screen and a dual main camera.

Compiled a rating of all devices on Apple Silicon and

The other day, new Apple PCs based on the SoC M2 went on sale. The source decided to compare all the current computers of the company on different platforms of the Apple Silicon family, and at the same time add new iPads and several generations of iPhone to the comparison.

The comparison here is based on Geekbench data, which is not as interesting as using any applications for real tasks, but still it is very interesting to look at the rating in this form.

This rating is generally quite predictable, but for some the results may be quite unexpected. For example, in one of the tests, the iPad Pro on the M1 turns out to be faster than full-fledged Macs on the SoC M1 cut down on the GPU. Since this is a graphics performance test, it actually makes sense.

It will also be useful to clearly see how the M2 in the processor test is not very far behind the M1 Pro with an eight-core CPU.

But the gap between any of the M1 versions and the A15 Bionic is always very large, which is explained not only by the difference in configuration, but also by completely different power limits.

“Ordinary bicycle arithmetic: 0.5 x 2 = 1 wheel.” American inventor built a “math bike”

Ordinary bicycle arithmetic 05 x 2 1 wheel American

An American engineer-inventor, credited on YouTube as “The Q” (possibly a reference to the James Bond character who led the Q department and supplied “Agent 007” with useful spy stuff) posted a video in which he showed the creation of a “math bicycle “. According to legend, the author broke a wheel during another bike ride, and at that moment he came up with the idea of ​​​​creating a bicycle with two halves of wheels instead of one whole. Actually, the formula according to which the construction was carried out is included in the title of the video: 0.5 x 2 = 1 wheel.

I must say, the “math wheel” looks both unusual and spectacular at the same time. Judging by the video, it is quite possible to ride it, and not only on a flat road. Instead of a chamber in the halves of the rear wheel, a polyethylene pipe is used, attached to the rim with rivets – it certainly will not work.

The video is already being actively discussed on the Web – and even more: the “math bike” has become a meme. Its image is used by programmers and engineers to denote spectacular, but generally meaningless things and solutions.
