In 1888, German scientist, Dr. Carl Gassner created the first dry cell and the first portable battery by encasing the wet cell chemicals in a sealed zinc container. In 1906, the National Carbon Company bought a half interest in the Eveready company. Eveready became “The American Ever Ready Company” and the trade name was shortened to one word, the familiar “Eveready”. This was also the year of the introduction of the tungsten wire filament to replace carbon filaments in light bulbs which made bulbs more efficient and brighter. Batteries had also improved and new switches began to appear on flashlights that allowed them to stay on for a few minutes.
