The first Northvolt plant was built in Skellefteå in northern Sweden. In December, he started production. The second plant will be located in Gothenburg in western Sweden. It will be built by a joint venture with Volvo Cars. Northvolt said it plans to build at least two more plants in Europe in the next decade.

“The new gigafactory will increase Northvolt’s battery capacity to over 170 GWh,” the company said in a statement. “In addition to manufacturing batteries, Northvolt Drei will be a battery recycling plant that ensures the efficient reuse of by-products from the manufacturing process.”

To date, Northvolt has signed more than $50 billion in contracts with customers such as BMW, Scania, Volkswagen, Volvo Cars and Polestar.

Using the Honor V Purse smartphone clutch as a clutch can

The “smartphone-clutch” Honor V Purse, despite its positioning as a fashion accessory and form factor, is priced at not the most $825 for the basic version.

As it became known, Honor will charge about $558 for screen repair. This is the price in China at the current exchange rate. It will also be very expensive to replace the motherboard: $274 or $342 depending on the configuration. Of course, this includes the platform, RAM and flash memory, since all this is soldered on the board.

Everything else will not be very expensive to replace:

  • Battery (main) – 159 yuan ($22)
  • Battery (auxiliary) – 159 yuan ($22)
  • Back cover – 239 yuan ($33)
  • Front camera (main) – 139 yuan ($19)
  • Rear camera (wide angle) – 149 yuan ($20)
  • Rear camera (main) – 379 yuan ($52)

Considering that this is a “smartphone-clutch”, it will be much easier to damage the screen of such a device than a regular smartphone that is constantly carried in a pocket or bag. And the prices for repairs indicate that it is better to be careful.
