Black history has been made again! VoltCell, a battery company created by twin brothers Marcus and Markee Baskerville, has powered up and broken a barrier as the first Black-owned business to sell batteries on Amazon.

According to Black Business, the siblings worked tirelessly to produce a product in an industry that rarely has people of color at the forefront. When crafting their batteries, the Baskerville brothers were intentional about producing high-powered batteries. Per their product description on Amazon, they’re made for a multitude of devices and are “designed with performance and longevity in mind” and “built to last.”

With safety and preservation of nature being a priority of the company, Marcus and Markee want to ensure there aren’t any safety concerns so their batteries don’t contain mercury.

Besides leveling up, the duo had an internal goal to help increase diversity in an industry Black people aren’t known to dabble in often. They hope by adding their safe and environmentally conscious batteries to Amazon, a billion-dollar corporation, others will recognize the versatility of Black people.

“This time is a moment of immense pride and joy for the VoltCell team,” Marcus said. “Being the first black-owned battery company on Amazon is a testament to our dedication to excellence and our ability to never give up.”

Additionally, Marcus expressed that he hopes this business move brings forth more inclusion in battery production.

“It is an honor to represent diversity and provide customers with a diverse choice for their battery needs,” he shared.

Markee is equally as excited about the progress their business is making.

“We are grateful for God’s blessings through this process to get to where we are now,” he said. “This achievement would not have been possible without me and my brother’s belief in VoltCell’s mission to make a positive impact.”
