National Battery Day
Date When Celebrated : Always February 18
People get a charge out of National Battery Day. We are absolutely energized about the many uses and applications. It's an opportunity to celebrate a vital invention. Batteries are used everywhere, from the battlefield to smoke alarms to headsets. They come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, and power capacity, to fit a wide array of needs.
Just imagine where the world would be without batteries. We'd still be using a crank to start our automobiles. We'd have to cart around long extension cords to bring the boombox to the beach. And, forget about hand-held games. They'd never be popular tied to an electrical outlet.
Yesiree, batteries are electrifying!
Today is a good time to appreciate the the power of batteries in our everyday life.
Origin of National Battery Day:
Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
Most likely, this day was created by a national association or a battery manufacturer.
This is referred to as a "National" day. However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
Several site visitors have suggested that this day is in honor of Alessandro Volta, Italian physicist and inventor of electric battery, who was born on this day in 1745.
