The low frequency responses of a kinetic model of dusty plasma, taking into account the absorption of the plasma particles on the dust particles and fluctuations of dust charge, are evaluated numerically in order to identify realistic experimental parameter regimes where charging effects are dominant. A range of parameters in terms of dust number density and size as well as plasma densities, where significant differences with the multicomponent approach can be found, is proposed. General expressions for the imaginary parts of the low frequency responses are derived and numerical results for the damping rate in the corresponding ranges are provided to ensure that observations of dust-acoustic waves in those conditions are plausible.
