Question
Why does the charging light keep going out?
I bought this today and plugged in the charger. The red light comes on initially, but goes off within a minute or so. The display shows absolutely no charge (it's right down in the red). Why does the light keep going out, and how can I get the unit to charge?

Press the red button to see how much charge there is. Takes a long time to charge initially.

The red light is intermittent on mine to but still seems to charge ok

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

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.

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
