which jump leads would be best for a 2l diesel car, 400amp or 700amp?

Get the 700 amp, others may burn through; .. guess how I know this?

Also remember the donor battery should have an output sufficient to start a diesel car , these suckers really take some juice...

I have one and charges up any 12v batter the same as a normal charger just takes longer,
I have a 4 cylinder car and 2L V6, the V6 didn't want to start the other day. I don't use it as much as the other one so the battery eventually became flat, possibly accentuated by the cold weather. Anyway I used a jump start unit which I borrowed from a friend and it started. I'm guessing I need something with midrange power in terms of amps to cover starting these cars. The V6 is likely to get a flat battery every couple of months as I leave it 1-2 weeks at a time, am I screwing the battery by not using it much?
which one will charge my 1.9 dieseil audi 4 cylindeR?
Can i use this for my mini cooper 1.6? Hanks

Yeah although I think your battery is on its last legs and will need replacing. Normally from my experience a good battery will last a few weeks before going flat,
I keep one of my cars in the garage over the winter period and keep it charged up every few weeks via a trickle charger (Above),. Perhaps you could do the same thing?

No garage I'm afraid

Volt meter in the car reads 14V when I'm driving drops to 12V when idling. I think I noticed it might have been dipping below 12V at times.
The 8amp charger seems to have gone up to £26.99
Ordered the 6amp at £6.86 - click & collect.
Thanks OP - heat added.

Apparently, once a car battery drops below around 40% charge, it starts to destroy itself internally. So whilst jump starting the car and driving a few miles may sort you out, in my experience the battery will die completely within a few weeks (especially during the winter months). The best way to ensure your battery is in good condition is to get a volt meter and ensure its voltage never drops below 12.5v, ideally a fully charged battery should show around 12.65-12.75 volts.

... well, I've just ordered a 6amp charger and a tow rope, so not sure about that!
Tried to order another as a gift for a friend, but no luck. All out. Tow ropes might still be available?
