Questions about Zareba® 10 Mile AC Powered Low Impedance Charger
Yes, this energizer is sufficient to keep nuisance pests out of a garden area.
We recommend disconnecting the lower wires during periods of heavy snow to keep the fence from grounding out.
This energizer will output 10,500 volts (+/- 20%) when tested with a fence tester across the terminals with both the fence and ground wires removed. The reading in KV is 10.5.
In order to receive a shock, the animal would need to be standing on earth ground. If this is not an available option, we recommend installing a two wire ground system. Please click here and view page 15 for more information on this system.

We do not recommend using a volt meter as they are designed to read high amps and low voltage. Our fence energizers are the opposite as they put out low amps and high volts. For the most accurate reading, we recommend using a fence tester such as the Zareba 8-Light Electric Fence Tester (Model RSVT8). The grounding should have less than 500 volts.
