There are so few electrical items today that can be repaired and that are not designed to be disposable. If you can...
As an alternative, some international banks offer accounts that are based locally but denominated in different currencies - e.g., you can open an account in London denominated in USD or EUR.

Not sure why some people are so critical about this picture. I'm not a fan of the pocket square, but everything else looks great for a real life photo of someone on the street.
