Happy National Battery Day

Did you know today is National Battery Day?

The battery has been around since 1748 when Ben Franklin first introduced us to the word and we are so happy they are.

We try to always keep two packs on hand the most popular being AA and the second AAA. What batteries do you use most in your house?

Imagine where we would be without our batteries. While we don't want to imagine a world without, we know that there is always a possibility of now power. Could be a few hours, could be days. If that ever happens to you, we suggest you add this sweet little solar contraption to your arsenal of emergency supplies. We did and have only had to use it once but are so glad we have it.
