From one review:

NOTES
1) If you press the test button on the kit after starting a flat battery (while connected to the car) it will show that the alternator is working / charging. Good to know the battery is being charged.

Looks good. Heat added
I did buy one similar locally but found it could not start anything over 1600cc and I have an 1800.

You have to hook it up to the battery for at least 10 mins.

This will start my 2.2l diesel, but needs to be hooked up for upto 20 minutes first. It remains a cheaper option than getting a garage to try and find the drain on my battery's current. Compressor is handy for inflating kids' toys too.

Thanks for that.. not sure I fancy standing outside in the snow for 20mins but I guess better than not getting to work .....
Every now and then my car battery seems to be flat when it gets cold, now getting worried about the winter coming so this will give me some peace of mind having to travel 25 miles to work in the early hours of the morning. Thanks for the post will let you know what it's like for me..:D
Well this starter unit was called into action today and it worked perfectly, charged the unit for 72hrs when delivered (standard 1st charge), woke up to a pretty much dead battery(very cold morning), hooked up the jump starter and left it for a couple of mins and my 1.5l diesel Saxo started first time (now just have to find out why i had a dead battery lol) saved me missing a days work so very impressed so far....

I got it after my bat died just as a backup. I would advise to get a battery test done on your car battery, the aa man checked my car battery and it wasn't holding a charge, apparently it's the cold weather which causes old batteries to fail. My car battery lasted 8 years before it died the other weekend.

Yeah gonna get my battery tested now but will be very surprised because I've only had it a couple of years, Definitely a life saver to have in your boot for emergencies especially in the winter and with all the petrol stations charging for compressed air now (mine is 50p/2mins or £1/10mins) this will also help pay for itself...:D
what are the specs on the mains charger for this eqpt?
