New Head Up Display added to Powerspark product range

Posted: June 26, 2017 by goodshoutmedia in Latest Products

This week we are proud to announce the arrival of a new Head Up Display to our range.

Did you know at 40mph, whilst looking at your dials for 1 second your car will cover 16 metres?

1 second and 16 metres could be the difference between seeing the brake lights of the car in front… and hitting it.

It could be the difference between seeing that ball bounce out from behind a parked car… or not.

Head Up Displays were developed for military pilots to ensure information can be received without any distraction. They project key vehicle information onto the windscreen.

These units connect to the OBD port on your car and mount on the dashboard. Being lightweight and compact, it’s easy to install and stow and remains subtle when not in use.

The Powerspark A200 is a more compact version of the original A8 Head Up Display, and features user programmable alerts for use whilst driving.

New to Powerspark this week… The Dk4 Distributor Rotor Arm.

We launched the Austin 7 DK4A Distributor quite recently, and can now offer the rotor arm alone for customers that simply need a replacement.

Red moulded rotor arm to suit Lucas DK4A or Powerspark D31 Distributor as fitted to Austin 7… and many more!

Clockwise Rotation.

Why Moulded not riveted?

Our rotor arms utilise fully moulded construction instead of the original riveted design. Over time, rivets can become loose causing issues with reliability and rotor arms simply falling apart… A fully moulded unit can’t break apart no matter how much you drive the car. These are well built, strong replacement units.

Introducing a new bundle deal from Powerspark… Refresh the ignition of your Ford Cologne V6.

This bundle combines our Ford Cologne V6 Distributor (featuring Powerspark Electronic Ignition) with a set of high quality 8mm Silicone HT Leads and a solid core performance Viper Coil.

Distributor Details:

Precision manufactured distributor containing a Powerspark Electronic Ignition Kit and a brand new distributor cap. Easy to fit and install, this will upgrade your existing ignition to electronic ignition and the results are instantly recognisable. Electronic ignition can transform the starting and running of your car, giving better idling and better spark transfer when running.

Viper Coil Details:

The Viper Dry Ignition Coil is a modern high performance ignition coil designed to replace your traditional oil filled coil. Unlike a traditional coil, the Viper uses dry resin inside a secure housing instead of oil. This does away with temperamental performance associated with sloshing or dripping fluid, while keeping the same design characteristics of a traditional coil. Having a solid dry core means the Viper coil can be mounted on any angle without the risk of sloshing or dripping.

HT Lead Details:

Our HT Leads have been designed to meet or exceed original equipment specifications. They are UK made for the Highest quality and performance with ISO 3808 Class Noise Suppression. They feature Double silicon cable for maximum suppression and minimal interference, Our HT leads are resistant to temperature, water, oil degradation and chemical attack.

This week at Powerspark we are happy to announce three new products from Lifeline.

The Pocket range of portable batteries are, as you can probably guess from the name, pocket sized portable power packs. With modern Li-Po technology, these little things are leagues ahead of previous generations of portable battery pack.

With the USB to USB2 and Apple Lightning cable, the Lifeline Pocket can charge any USB2 or Lightning device straight out of the box. With the right cable, it can charge any device that accepts a standard USB plug.

We love the finish of these products, they feel great quality, they’re sturdy and robust yet they really are pocket sized – even the largest of the Lifeline Pocket range is no bigger than the latest iPhone.

If you are always scrabbling around for a phone charger, or find your vaporiser battery flashing when you’re miles away from home, the Lifeline Pocket range will be perfect for you!

LLA3 - Lifeline Ampstore Charger.jpg

Battery storage and charging experts Lifeline have launched two new emergency battery chargers, which are now on shelves and available to order at Powerspark Ignition.

LLA3 - Lifeline Ampstore

The Lifeline Ampstore and Ampstore PLUS are superb handheld jump starters for classic and modern cars. Featuring advanced battery technology,  both units are capable of jump starting a staggering number of cars considering they are small enough to keep in a glovebox.

The Ampstore comes in at just 17cm x 9cm wide x 3cm deep, meaning it takes up next to no space in your glovebox. Even the larger Ampstore PLUS is only 23cm long and just fractionally wider and deeper than the standard Ampstore.

Featuring rugged design and bright yellow colouring (making it hard to lose), these two chargers really are essential purchases for the avid motoring enthusiast.

Lifeline say that the Ampstore is capable of jump starting 20 cars from a single charge, whilst the Ampstore PLUS can manage an impressive 40 cars!

Both devices can retain their charge for 6 to 12 months, making them perfect for keeping in your car or in the garage in case of emergencies. What’s more, both devices can charge mobile electronics such as mobile phones, whilst the larger Ampstore PLUS is also able to charge laptops and notebooks.

Starting the car from flat… with a nifty new product from Powerspark

The car is not quite as pristine as you see in the picture and It needs a little Powerspark goodness. Last time out it was forced into service as a daily driver during a particularly wet and muddy December. It’s since been left parked in its the garage for a more than a year. So, it’s grubby, has a flat battery and the MoT has expired. Nothing that can’t be sorted, but first thing is to get the engine running…

A quirk of this car is that its big dual Dellorto carburettor setup will dry out if left for any length of time, so it will take a lot of engine cranking before it will fire. Despite charging the battery for a good few hours, there wasn’t enough power to crank the engine fast or long enough to get it started. That’s just not going to happen with this old battery! Powerspark to the rescue with the new Lifeline Ampstore Plus Portable Emergency Jump Starter.

LLA21 - Lifeline Ampstore Plus

 

The Lifeline Ampstore Plus Portable Emergency Jump Starter is a rechargeable Lithium-Polymer battery pack small enough fit in you pocket, yet powerful enough for several jumpstarts. But could it possibly start the reluctant VW? This will surely be a test…

Now, with dual Dellorto carburettors it can take a minute or more of cranking to prime the carbs from dry. Oh, and just to make things interesting, while the battery had been on charge, I swapped the 009 distributor for an SVDA, and I’m just hoping that the HT leads are in the right places…

I connected the jump start unit to the Ampstore Plus, then the heavy duty clips to the battery we’re ready to go. The instructions state that you mustn’t crank for more than 3 seconds. If the engine does’t start, wait 30 seconds before trying again.

When this car is used regularly, the engine always starts first go, but with those big carbs needing priming, the routine is crank 3 seconds, wait 30 seconds, crank 3 seconds, wait 30 seconds, until it fires. Will the tiny Ampstore Plus be up to it?

It cranks fast with the Jump Starter connected and sure enough, after maybe six or seven attempts, the engine spluttered into life. I’m impressed! It’s cold and dark outside, so to try out more of its features, I set about using the built-in torch to help check the tyre pressures on the daily driver before heading back into the warm to charge my phone from one of the Ampstore Plus’s two USB ports. Checking the charge indicator showed it still had plenty of power left.

The troublesome VW hadn’t made a dent in the Ampstore Plus‘s power.

What a fantastic bit of kit!
