Do you use rechargeable or regular batteries at your house?

National Battery Day

When : Always February 18th

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.

We use both. Things like phones, video game controllers, and cameras all have rechargeable batteries. It's too expensive to use disposable in those kind of devices.

We use disposables but not very often.  The only things we use the batteries in are things like cars, laptops and phones.

We use rechargeable batteries. About 3 years ago I bought a battery charger from Best Buy. I have been buying rechargeable batteries ever since!

 We use regular ones. We tried rechargable ones once and after just a few uses they just weren't holding a charge very long anymore. And we weren't using cheapo ones, either, they were Energizers.

 

For some reason, my 1st thought when I saw President's Day and batteries in the same title was the Hall of Presidents exhibit at Disney : )
