In recent weeks, I’ve been lax in posting my blog due to medical issues worming their way through me. Things are on the mend, and it is now safe to say, “I’m back.” Let’s get started!
Not so many years ago, I used batteries just in flashlights and a handful of other items. These days’ things have changed a bit. When it comes to lawn care, our gas fueled mower and weed eater have been replaced with battery-powered equipment. Power tools that used to run on AC current, such as drills, circular saws and numerous other hand tools are all powered by battery. Even when I write, I find I employ devices that run on DC current, including my mouse and Bluetooth.
Two remotes for our television, one remote for our bed, and we mustn’t forget the almighty telephone, all requiring batteries to activate.
Assorted batteries in our van and an inside ” transport lift” round out a plethora of items that use batteries to come to life.
Next time you pick something that requires power, take a gander. Does it plug in to a receptacle in order to operate, plug in to a receptacle restoring an exhausted charge or must you slide small power cells into this item for it to function? Nuff said.
