We have power! You now have all the skills and knowledge you need to draw your very own cartoon battery – the real question is, what on earth will it be powering?

Every year on December 25th, the vast majority of the world celebrate Christmas. This looks different in households across the globe, depending on your background, family makeup and personal preferences. There is one factor, however, which is universal, and one scene which is guaranteed to be observed in households across the world – no matter where you are from.

We are talking, of course, about putting in batteries. In fact, for many of us, batteries dominate the holiday season – do the children’s toys come with batteries, or do we need to add them and purchase them in advance? Will we have enough batteries to get through the day? Should we opt for rechargeable or single-use? Do the fairy lights require batteries? Should we buy another pack just in case? The humble battery plays a pivotal role in our lives – far more so than you may have previously anticipated!

The very first battery was created in 1798, by inventor Alessandro Volta, though many archaeologists argue that batteries have been around for far longer than this.

In 1938, experts in Iraq discovered a 5-inch pottery jar, which contained a copper cylinder encasing an iron rod – this is largely believed to have been an ancient battery and maybe the very first of its kind.

These days, Americans are believed to purchase almost 3 billion batteries each year – and we are willing to bet that most of these are towards the end of the season!
