National Battery Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on February 18
People get a charge out of National Battery Day. We are absolutely energized about the many uses and applications for batteries. Today is an opportunity to celebrate a vital and useful 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. More and more electric cars are hitting the roads every year. They are powered by, you guessed it, batteries.
Yesiree, batteries are electrifying!
Today is a good time to appreciate the real power of batteries in our everyday life.
