Motorsport Heritage

For over 50 years, the name “Varley” has been associated with high-performance batteries, manufactured for use in extreme situations. The brand name became popular in the 1950s when supplied to the Royal Air Force for use in their fighter aircraft. “Varley” batteries first went supersonic in 1956 on a Fairey Delta 2.  This was also the first aircraft to break 1000mph, flown by Lt Cdr Peter Twiss at 1132mph in a straight & level flight on March 10th 1956.

Historically, “Varley” batteries were constructed using “Fuller’s Earth” to absorb the electrolyte, making the batteries effectively dry. This increased the product’s safety, and vibration resistance and also allowed the battery to be used in any orientation.

All of these are important requirements for aircraft applications, and just like many other technologies (such as carbon fibre), the aviation industry led the way
for motorsport.
