“Late on Friday night my wife popped out to put the electronically operated roof back on our convertible Golf 2.0 MK3, as we’d had the top down earlier in the day. To do that you need the keys in the ignition….

On Monday morning, we couldn’t find the keys… sure enough, they were in the ignition, with the key at position 2. Needless to say, the battery couldn’t be flatter. We grabbed an Ampstore from Powerspark, and straight out of the box without even charging the device up it started the Golf almost immediately. Buy one. Buy one now”

The Lifeline B6001 Intelligent Trickle Charger is now back in stock, with a new and improved microprocessor.

Ever popular with classic car owners and collectors, the B6001 has a built in electronic auto shut off to prevent the battery from overcharging. It uses pulse recharging to extend the working life of any battery, and functions as a trickle charger
to maintain and optimise a battery; as well as having the ability to rescue a completely at battery. The dustproof and spashproof outer cover makes it durable and hardwearing, whilst the simple LED display makes it very easy to use. Ideal for infrequently used leisure and pleasure vehicles such as classic cars, motorcycles, caravans and boats, vehicles which spend any length of time not being used.

As the technology on modern cars becomes more complex, the drain on automotive batteries has increased. Many cars do not like being left standing for long periods of time, and a trickle charger can go some distance to avoiding unneccesary headaches that can come with a at or ruined battery.

Lifeline B6001 Trickle Charger & Battery Optimiser – Single Unit £29.95 (RRP £29.95) 

Lifeline B6001 Trickle Charger & Battery Optimiser – Twin Pack £49.95 (RRP £59.95) 

Lifeline B6001 Trickle Charger & Battery Optimiser – Triple Pack £64.95 (RRP £79.95)

A happy customer writes…

Posted: May 11, 2018 by goodshoutmedia in Powerspark Products, Customer Vehicles

Good afternoon,

I ordered a 034 dist, viper coil leads and plugs from you.

Finally got them fitted early this week, although a slight scare with the timing of this dist being 90 degree different from one already fitted (009 )

Car started up fine and is running the smoothest and by far the quietest it ever has in my ownership. It sounds so much better and without all the shakes it had before and now no backfiring , esp good as the car has no silencers fitted at all.

Thank you so much for your recommendation of which combination of parts to fit.

Well impressed with the parts and quality of service”

from Trevor Walker

This afternoon we were visited by this fantastic California import VW Splittie and just had to share a photo! What a wonderful colour.


Staffer Jon spent his lunch break improving the horn on his MGB.

The Lucas LUHN007 is a brand new genuine Lucas item and gives a surprisingly loud and confident tone, making the MGB sound much more sure of itself than ever before!
