Get pumped up to celebrate National Battery Day on Feb. 18! This day was created in 1991 as a way to recognize the importance of batteries and their contribution to modern life. Batteries have been around since the 1700s, when scientist Alessandro Volta invented them by stacking discs of silver and zinc together. Since then, they've powered everything from watches and hearing aids, to cars, cell phones and computers.
