Varley Red TopTM Racing Batteries for circuit and rally cars

The Varley Red Top Motorsport Battery Range from DMS technologies has been the PREMIER choice for the professional and club racing driver for some 60 years and the batteries have evolved over time to meet the changing demands of both motor racing or rally disciplines.

NEW : VarleyTM Lithium Li-16 12V 16Ah Motorsport Battery                                             
Smaller - More Powerful - Lighter

Following extensive testing, the Varley Lithium 12V 16Ah battery is now available.  This battery fully conforms to the UN Recommendations for the Transportation of Dangerous Goods - click here for the latest version.  The Li-16 surpassed all the relevant tests including: Altitude Simulation, Thermal, Vibration, Shock, External Short Circuit, Impact, Overcharge, Forced Discharge

Take a look at our video.

This latest development is a Lithium Ferrous Phosphate (LFP)  LiFePO4 battery that has a nominal voltage of 12.8V, closer to a car's 12V system than other LFP versions that have a nominal voltage of 13.2V, and a capacity of 16.1Ah. The Li-16 is the same size as the Varley Red Top 15 but with the cranking performance of a Varley Red Top 30 - and weighs only 3.2kg.  We also offer two lithium chargers.  Click here for more details of the battery and chargers.

The 2014 season gets underway : F1 got under way as usual in Australia, the new 1.6 V6 engines generating a lot of media coverage.  Our batteries are used by many teams so was hardly a surprise when last year at Melbourne Ted Kravitz came across a crate during his Ted's Notebook session after the race, check this short video clip.:   The BTCC had its regular season opener at Brands Hatch, a very strong grid this year and a couple of returning champions in Alain Menu and Fabrizio Giovanardi joining the other 5 champions amongst the 31 drivers this year.  This Easter will see the second running of the Thruxton Easter Revival featuring many historic series including F2 and Super Tourers, and supported by Varley Red Top.  We are again supporting the British Hillclimb Championship won last year by Scott Moran.

To ensure you receive the best operating life and performance from your battery we supply a range of chargers, battery mounting brackets and engine start powerpacks specifically designed to meet the demands of all levels of motorsport.  Please read the Battery Care section in our Downloads section (click here).


Our Varley Red Top branded product range is supported by unparalleled technical and after-sales teams through our motorsport-specialist distributors and our specialist staff at DMS technologies.

In addition to working with manufacturers, teams and distributors, we are proud of our relationships with many of the UKs University Formula Student teams, where we assist the students with help and advice concerning their battery installation.
