Errmmm maybe someone can't start their car because the battery is flat, which is why they are trying to use this in the first place?

Nice price, but I have one and it would be better suited to charging up an old mobile phone. Hopeless.

I totally agree, But does this supply enough power to do Jumpstart? I was thinking about one of these few days back then I thought if in doubt just change the battery.

I am using a jump starter (15 000 mah) for my car when the battery goes down. What is the difference with this thing?

This is a charger. Think of it as a trickle charger. It wont jump start anything. You connect it to the battery and it gradually charges it, same as when you plug your phone into a charger. Even then this is only rated up to a 1.6l car.

Your charger probably has an output of 600A or 800A,whereas this has 6A, because it is designed to charge slowly over time, and not give it a great big kick all in one go. Even when you use your jump starter, you haven't actually charged the battery, all you've done is get the car started. Turn it off and you likely cant start it again unless it has been running for a while, and the alternator has charged your battery a bit, same as this would.

If you are just using a jump starter and aren't driving your car around for a good couple of hours after starting, then your battery will remain in a fairly low state of charge which will shorten its life. You need one of these..
Good price for a 6amp charger, should be sufficient to charge most batteries overnight, ie 10-12 hours.
Thank you for the answers guys. But what if I jump start my car and drive it for an hour and when I stop and forgot my lights for 2 seconds the battery goes down again. Do I need a new battery or this one will do the job if I charge my battery to full? (The light on the battery is green..I have one)

Difficult to say, but sounds like your battery may be dead. A charger may get you a few more months out of it until winter.
