Fence Chargers: The Heart of an Electric Fencing System

Fence chargers, also known as, fence energizers, controllers, fencers or electric fence box, are the foundation of an effective electric fencing system. They provide the current that flows through fence wire similar to the way the heart pumps blood throughout the body. Many ranges of fence chargers are available from our brands: Zareba, Red Snap’R, Blitzer, Fi-Shock, Agway, and BullDozer, varying in current output and type of power source.

The type of fence charger needed for your particular fencing needs will be dependent on the following factors:

  • Length of fence
  • Number of wires
  • Power source available
  • Type of animal(s) being contained or excluded

Zareba's comparison charts are a helpful too in determining which fence charger best suits your needs.
