Get Recharged On National Battery Day

Allesandro Volta, inventor of the first battery, was born on February 18, 1745. That's why February 18th is National Battery Day. Every great invention deserves a special day, doesn't it? Even if you've never celebrated this little-known holiday, it's not too late to start!

If you have a car, cell phone, computer, flashlight, or a wireless mouse, then you have batteries, and you may not realize how much they've improved in the past few centuries! If you aren't already using rechargeable batteries in your gadgets, today is your day to begin.

Check out this video to learn more about new UltraLast lightweight and compact solar and USB battery chargers:

This time last year, 63,590 people participated in FC EXPO 2009 & PV EXPO 2009, the world's largest hydrogen & fuel cell event and Asia's largest photovoltaic event. If you're really into batteries, you can attend this year's event or one of the many other upcoming photovoltaic events.

The next time you need batteries, choose rechargeables to help reduce the number of batteries that end up in our landfills.
