National Battery Day is celebrated every 18th of February annually to appreciate an essential item that almost every gadget is incomplete without.

We live a life dominated by technology and are highly reliant on battery-operated devices, including cell-phones and laptops.

Batteries’ continued resilience proved beneficial for the U.S., even more when the nation saw COVID-19 cases peaking and the economy plunging to a record low. Schools, businesses, and offices were ordered shut at that time, and remote working became the last resort. That is when the battery’s true worth was understood, and the U.S. lead battery industry carried out the essential work of building more batteries to help keep the economy afloat.

We must also appreciate that batteries have played a crucial role in distributing the COVID-19 vaccine across the U.S. Batteries run every aspect of logistics, including forklifts in the warehouse, ground vehicles at airports and cold storage. This makes the essential item all the more coveted and boosts the need for more production.

Here are some quotes about batteries proving that the modern world will come to a standstill without batteries. (Courtesy-
