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.

This starter is suitable for vehicles up to 2000cc. A better option for larger engines is the Ring Professional Power Pack (online code 966952)

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?

Can you jump start your car by connecting with cigarette connecter instead of leads

You cannot jump start your car via the cigarette connector as the fuse for the socket and your vehicle internal wiring behind the dash is not suitable for jump starting. The battery leads must be used.

The A/C charger supplied is a trickle charger but leaving on permanently is a waste. The unit needs to be fully charged after each use and every 3 months if not used.

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.

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

Question
What is the cold start cranking amps of this booster
Do you have a more powerful battery booster?
I'm looking for a booster which has a 650amp cold cranking on start up, your booster here does not have the strength to start a 2ltr diesel. I'm more than willing to prove Hafords wrong on this. Quite simply a 400 amp battery booster will not start a larger diesel engine maybe an eco 1.4 or 1.6hdi but certainly not a 2.0hdi or above.
