Are you aware that lemons can be a source of power?  Amazingly, this is true!  Such power trivia can be very educational and will surely come handy should a battery need to be recharged during a power outage day.  Come to think of it, can you imagine life without a power source?  It would be like going back to primeval days!

When is the National Battery Day in 2017?

National Battery Day is on February 18, 2017, Saturday.

The National Battery Day is always observed worldwide on the 18th day of February each year.

The Origin and Purpose of the National Battery Day:

The National Battery Day celebrates the value of batteries in our day-to-day life.  This bizarre unofficial holiday is observed on the birthday of Alessandro Volta, an Italian physicist and inventor of the electric battery, in 1745.

What is a battery?

A battery is a device composed of one or more electrochemical cells that changes stored chemical energy into electrical energy.  It is the common source of electricity in many homes, offices and industrial applications.

The National Battery Day observance:

Batteries come in all kinds of shapes, dimensions and power capacity suitable to a wide range of needs.  Observing this day by not using it would surely refresh our appreciation for the value of batteries in our life.  So, for the day, give the CD player a rest, no Gameboys or playing with battery-operated toys.

Giving your car a rest day also gives you the chance to stay at home.  This day may be dedicated to family wholly when the computer and mobile phones are turned off.  Creative recreational activities may also be done with family members without the use of radios, wristwatches and emergency lights!
