I bought this electric fencer two years ago for travelling to rodeos and competitions as well as at home use. It has been flawless, I couldn't be happier. Conveniently sized, and easy set up. Would be perfect for taking outback into the mountains for those horses that you are unable to hobble. I even used it for a stubborn pony that would just walk through barbed wire, it put an end to his fence climbing abilities. Would definately recommend this charger to anyone who wants a portable electric fencer. Well worth the money.Date published: 2015-01-27Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Failed Units -- quality Loved these units , while they worked. Mean time before failure is about three years. I wish I could agree with the other posters. Second one just failed ( D cell use) . As suggested by customer service post,,,I always ck the fence/etc. Now , I have a line powered trickle charger on it -- works great , but 150 foot cord is on the lawn. Again, great little unit, while it worked--- just tired of the replacement schedule . Thanks for letting me post . Regards,JackStillwater, MinnesotaDate published: 2013-07-09Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Review Posted on Amazon.com 01-29-11 I used this charger for a temporary fence around a 3-acre frozen lake on my farm -- to keep horses off of it. I used 4 D-cell batteries, as I needed to get this in service ASAP.This is a terrific battery charger for its purpose, and for those of us who are electrically-challenged. It mounts easily (no duct tape required, don't know what that was about!), and the off/on switch is very easy to find and use. Yes, it is under the housing, out of the way from the prying antics of wildlife and/or horses. VERY easy to turn it off / on / low -- this was not a problem for me.This charger works exactly as advertised. Might have more JUICE with a 12-volt, but the D-cells worked great and my horses respect it. This allowed me to get an important safety barrier within a few hours and for less than a few hundred dollars, including the line posts. I highly recommend it for the intended purposes.Date published: 2011-09-30Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous from Works great......for 14 months This is my 3rd attempt to get a review posted, seems they won't post negative reviews. I've gone through my 4th charger in 7 years. They work slightly longer than the 1 year warranty, then quickly lose their punch. They need to use better electronics that last. I keep buying them because there's not much else I can use in my situation.Date published: 2012-02-03Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Review Posted on tractorsupply.com Bought this to use on a fence nowhere near electricity. Works great on the D cell batteries, or if you want a longer recharge time a marine battery. I actually like this better than my AC model. I just charge the battery about every month or so and never worry about it. It is easy to install and easy to use. Highly recommend.Date published: 2010-02-04Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Worked great, and hen... This unit worked fine on the D batteries for all last year to keep deer and rabbits, etc., out of a 36x12 foot garden. This year it clicks for awhile and then no clicking. If I push up on the switch it'll start clicking, but stops again after variable time. Not sure what to think. Wish it worked as it did last year.Date published: 2013-06-22Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Review Posted on tractorsupply.com We recently purchased the Zareba DC-Operated fence controller for our hog and goat pastures. Although small, it really does the job! No more escapees or fences being pushed over. During the recent ice storm, this controller continued to work even while being encased in ice. I highly recommend it! Excellent Product.Date published: 2010-02-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Review Posted on tractorsupply.com I currently use this fence Controller on a 2 acre pasture. I have cows and goats that refuse to get out anymore. I would recommend this controller for any pasture that has no access to power. I'm on my second month with a 6 volt battery that is still producing the same amount of Juice as it did the first day.Date published: 2010-08-19
What is battery saver mode?There are 2 settings for powering on this unit. The ON1 setting (high power) is for longer fences or animal training and will reduce battery life. The ON2 setting (low power) is for short fences and maximizes battery life.Date published: 2016-12-19
My charger only seems to work on the power saving mode. This is my first time using it and I have only used D battery's. It will work sometimes on High mode if it is turned upside down. Any ideas?This charger can run off internal D cells (output approx 3500 volts) or external 12 volt (output approx 7000 volts). The three settings are: 1, battery-saver mode; 2, maximum output; and 3, off.

- All About
All About Fence Chargers
Chargers are the heart of the fence system, providing the source for the electric current that flows through the fence wire.
The size of charger needed is dependent upon your fencing needs. These needs are determined by three main factors: the length of the fence (number of wires), the power source (AC, DC or Solar), and the type of animal being contained or excluded.
See our comparison charts of our fence chargers to help you determine which is best for your needs.
Types of Chargers
There are three main types of chargers: AC-Powered, Battery-Operated and Solar-Powered. The source of power for the charger to function determines the type of charger you will be using. Each type of charger has specific situations in which it is most desirable to use.
Selecting the right fence charger with adequate power for your enclosure is critical to keeping your animals safe.
Choosing the Right Fence Charger
The right fence charger is the heart of your electric fence system. Finding the best-matched charger for your fence is imperative to successfully contain/exclude animals. The experts at Zareba® Systems explain a simple process to ensure you buy the right fence charger to meet your needs.
Installation and Location
Every Zareba® Systems fence charger comes with a detailed installation manual. In addition, individual components include “how-to” instructions to assist in your fence system assembly.
Lightning and Power Surge Protection
Lightning is often the cause of fence charger failure. When lightning strikes the fence, the sudden power surge can travel down the fence wire and damage the fence charger.
A variety of properly installed products can prevent or limit lightning damage.
FAQs about Chargers
Q: What factors should I consider when purchasing a fence charger?
A: The power source (AC, Battery or Solar Powered), energy output (in joules), the type of animal being controlled, the length of the fence (more wires need more power) and the amount of vegetation growing near the fence should be considered when you are selecting your fence charger.
Q: What does Low Impedance mean? I see it on chargers in stores and on websites.
A: Low impedance chargers increase the joules (energy) on a fence line if weeds or other vegetation touch the fence. Low impedance chargers are ideal for long, multi-strand poly wire, tape, rope or high tensile fence systems. Low impedance chargers are recommended for most applications and can be operated by AC, DC or Solar Power.
The other type of charger, known as a solid state charger, is usually used to control short-haired livestock, small animals, and pets where only moderate weed conditions exist. These chargers deliver a medium-amperage shock and can be operated by AC or DC.
Q: Why does my fence charger make clicking noises?
A: Most fence chargers have a pulsed output. Every time it “clicks,” it is releasing energy to the fence that has been stepped up or increased through a capacitor and a transformer. This release of energy makes noise. Not all chargers make the clicking noise. The noise is designed for the owner of the charger and serves no functional purpose.
