National Battery Day – Thursday 18th February
Alessandro Volta invented the battery in 1800, (the Voltaic Pile) leading to Alessandro being made a Count by Napoleon Bonaparte due to his world changing invention.
Following on from Alessandros invention, batteries evolved further when in 1899 French physicist Gaston Plante invented the rechargeable battery.
Where would we be today without these life changing inventions?
