Question
Dynamic Jumpstart has not worked?
I charged it for 24 hours - however the red light did not come on - does this mean the internal battery was not charging.? When I followed the instructions and used it on my vehicle's battery there was no response at all. How do I know if the jumpstart was properly charged? I know nothing about engines but from reading the reviews thought that this would do the job - one comment said they had not used a far larger vehicle than I have for 6 months and it worked first time - I have a tiny daewoo matiz.

If the red light did not come on then it was not charging or was already fully charged. That or there is a problem with either the product or the AC adaptor.

The charger does have a gauge on the front of it, pressing the red button will tell you if it is charged.

The red light should be on while charging. Please check that the charging lead is connected properly. If the red light still does not come on while charging, please seek assistance at your local Halfords store.

Question
Can this product used to re charge a flat car battery?

answer 1
If you mean a car battery that is not fitted to a car, then no. If you attach the leads then the flat battery will drain power from the charger, but only while the charger has more charge. Effectively both units would end up with 6 volts and be useless.

Not sure what would happen if you left the charger plugged in to the mains though...

You would be best attaching jump leads from a running car to the dead battery to get a full charge.

No Dynamic Jumpstarter is intended to provide enough power to jump start an engine. It will not recharge a battery.

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.

Yes it does, although it won't charge as fully as through the AC adaptor.

It also has a cigarette lighter socket so you can use it to run 12V appliances from it.

I suspect not as that model has a three litre engine and the product is only rated to two litre engines.

This could be merely to avoid complaints, I used to have a 2.5 litre Audi and jump leads rated up to 1.8 worked fine.

Suggest Halfords check the vehicle battery first to see if a replacement is required. This booster pack assists the existing battery to start the vehcile and is not a replacement battery. This pack should be sufficient tos upport the existing battery but this is dependent on the existing battery condition
