Each year, February 18 marks National Battery Day, a day to appreciate the convenience of batteries and how they make our everyday lives easier. These little powerhouses are so common and seemingly ordinary, we don’t give them much serious thought.
Until the remote dies. Or when the flash light doesn’t work. Or when your car makes the ultimate sound of defeat: the tell-tale wail of a dead battery.
Batteries, we’re grateful for you — both as a presence in our everyday home lives and in our working lives as jewelers.
Read on to learn more about watch batteries and some cool facts for #NationalBatteryDay.
