Can you believe this? There is a national day for batteries! Today, February 18, is the day to appreciate the convenience batteries provide to our everyday lives. We need batteries in so many things. Cars and other motor vehicles need batteries. Also computers, cell phones, security alarms, cameras, flashlights, watches, clocks, toothbrushes, toys, and so much more. We even have stores dedicated to batteries. Battery Plus sells so many different types of batteries and other accessories, such as chargers, adapters and more. To celebrate National Battery Day the Colorado Traveling Ducks recommend checking and perhaps replacing the batteries in smoke alarms and Carbon Monoxide detectors. Have a safe and happy National Battery Day.
