National Battery Day, In the News, and Enjoy

National Battery Day - Batteries allow us to manage and use a variety of things in life. Batteries are necessary to make things work.

While Benjamin Franklin applied the name "battery," the battery was created by Alessandro Volta, an Italian physicist, in 1800. Also like modern anatomy, he used a frog dissection as an experiment.

Despite controversy that some kinds of batteries do contain toxic material, try to dispose of them in an environmental way. Items that contain metal elements can pollute the land and ground water from any source such as landfills and sewers.

Depending on the battery brand, they may be costly. Using a battery recharger with a power outlet, most of them can be recharged hundreds of times before giving way. These are a huge money saver and can be conveniently charged while a person is out or sleeping.
