The instructions state the power-pack should be charged once every 6 months for 12 hours. This depends on frequency of use however. I have successfully jump-started a car (Rover Metro) which was left unused for approximately 2 months.

From my experience, the LED lights when charging. Your fault could be a faulty LED? Have you tried using the power-pack after its charge?

The Dynamic Jumpstarter (as all jump starters) will not start a car that has a 100% flat/discharged battery. If the car battery is completly dead it will need replacement.

So long as your bike is 12v yes. Some bikes are 6v so you will need to double check first.

No Jumpstarters are intended to give high voltages for a short period to jump start a car battery. They are not intended to run accessories for extended periods of time. We would recommend using a 12V Power adapter for this purpose.

Question
How flat is too flat ?
I've got a Passat 1.9 TDi that hasn't been out for several months. As such the battery is extremely flat, reading about 1.8V across the terminals and with too little charge for the central locking or lights to work. What are the odds that the Jumpstarter will get this going ?

It may work. According to the descrioptions in the Argos for similar products it states that the car battery must have at least two and a half per cent charge. Assuming full (idle) charge is 12V then this would be 0.3 volts.

For a running 14V then 0.35 volts.
