Review RateZareba® 100 Mile AC Low Impedance ChargerI like the charger, it is powerfull and zaps the weeds, but I am on my third one, and they seem to only last about a year. I can buy the right circuit board but the one that fails is the left on with the transformer. It is part number 01479-92. If you can tell me where to get a couple of them I can fix my fencers.
Review RateExcellent fence chargerI purchased the Zareba 100 mile charger at least 10 years ago. It's performed flawlessly keeping a few horses and up to 75 pigs contained. It has kept the fence charged thru heavy weeds and under deep snow in all kinds of weather. It's been mounted outside under the roof overhang and covered with a piece of heavy vinyl. Unfortunately after a severe lightning storm the charger seems to have stopped working. I plan to replace it with the same updated model.
Review RateGreat Fence Charger to Critters Out of the GardenMy vegetable garden was being overrun with rabbits, squirrels, a raccoon, and deer. The EAC100M-Z stopped the critters immediately. The height of the wire placement is very critical and after a thorough review of online suggestions, I installed galvanized 17 gauge wires at 4", 9", 14" and 30". The 9" high wire is grounded, the rest are all hot, this makes sure that small critters that leap in get shocked even if there feet are not touching the ground. I used one 3/4" x 10' copper clad ground rod. This ground rod was all I needed because in my area the water table is less than 10', you may need more ground rods in other areas. I used treated wooden posts for the corners and the gate, and steel T-bars at 15' spacing elsewhere. The voltage the EAC100M-Z puts out is 8.8 kV. It produces a very intense shock (6 joules), and will work superbly, even if there is wet vegetation touching the wires. The Zareba EAC100M-Z is not raintite, so I used a "Buddeez 32-Quart Dispenser for Pet Food and Bird Seed, X-Large" to provide rain protection for the charger. It is the perfect size for the Zareba EAC100M-Z fence charer, it is semi-clear, so that you can see the flashing light on the EAC100M-Z fence charger and know that it is working without removing the Buddeez cover. It is the perfect width and it is deep enough that you can install it onto a post that is up to 1-3/4" thick. 3 Year Warranty, Great Value For Cost, Works Well In Wet Weeds, and Made in the USA
Review RateA great purchase - Originally posted on TractorSupply.comI bought this to keep the deer out of the garden. I install two fences around the garden about 3 acres. So far it has keep all animals out. I have checked it at 4 different places and it is hot about 8700 volts. So far it has worked out pretty good.
Review RateHOT BOX - Originally posted on TractorSupply.comThis thing will charge the heck out of a fence line!!!! It keeps my studs apart with ease

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.
