Questions & Answers for Dynamic Dynamic Jump Starter

Question
It this its normal operation?
I bought this over the weekend and I tried to first put it to charge, as per the instructions. Only a couple of hours later I heard a buzzing noise that came from inside the unit and lasted 1-2 continuous minutes and after that the red light that was on during the charging time went completely off (and the noise stopped).
Is this normal? Is this an indication that the charging is fully done? Please advise as if this is not the case then I need to take it back. Pressing the test button it shows 13.5.
I have not tried to use it yet.

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.

Might be pushing it as it's not recommended but I think it would probably work as long as your battery is not completely dead

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.
