Charger Distance Ratings Your charger’s effectiveness depends on a number of factors, and one of them is the type of line you’re electrifying. For maximum line distance, use steel wire. Poly fencing styles are easy to install but they are not as conductive, which limits their total electrifiable distance.

very happy customer By Lamond

Mean old lighting got one of my old chargers and the calves would not stay in the pasture with the cows. I didn't care when they would get out and graze in the yard but when they started grazing along the road I knew I had to do something to put a stop to it. Charger works great all I had to do was move one screw to hang it where the old charge was hanging. Claves have stayed in the pasture with there mothers since I hooked it up and plugged it in.

Excellent long range charging By LRM33

This Zareba 100 mile AC fence charger is excellent. In installing it, I accidentally touched the hot wire and WHOW, what a jolt...I am very happy with it. I have run three strands around ten acres and have no doubts it will be charging for several years.

Right tool for the job By Karen

Fencer did the trick. Sheep had learned how to "duck and push" through a less powerful charged fence in full wool. This one leaves no question in their minds about the consequences, yet will not harm them.

Amazing product By CoachAnna

This electric fence charger saved my sanity! Great price for effectiveness. It even kept my mini bull in. I have 28 ponies and horses on a 2 acre turn out pasture. 12 of which are master escape artists. My old unit just wasn’t up to the challenge. I purchased the Electrobraid poly rope, a superior product as well. Ran two strands around the perimeter and WOW! It’s been 3 weeks and not one escapee. Thank you thank you thank you. I’m purchasing a second unit for my 5 acre pasture. Life just got easier.

Nothing but problems By David

We have had to send our fence charger in to be repaired 3 times within 2 years , the first time was a circuit board and second was for a capacitor every time we send the charger in we have pigs and sheep running loose. I have ask them to send we a new charger, but they insist that my charger has to be looked at and repaired. Zareba has mentioned that it could be the way that we have our fence installed but its installed as it should be as per Zareba instructional videos, plus we never had a issue with our smaller solar charger that was on the same fence. Zareba states that they stand by there product well Zareba I've sent this charger in to be repaired 3 times and your repairs aren't lasting. I've had to take time off work to round up my animals, and could have bought a brand new Gallagher charger with the money I've lost chasing livestock. Zareba told me its uncommon for charger to be sent in multiple times to be repaired but as I can see from the reviews here and on other boards it is common, why else would there be multiple repair centers? I'd give a negative star it there was one.

Poor quality By Rob

I have three of these fencers and none of them have worked for two years. I bought the first two at the same time and have no idea why I bought the third on when one quit working. Also good luck with trying to return one to Tractor Supply. By far one of the most disappointing purchases in forty years of farming. They work great when working but you have make a product work longer than this. Also would like to know if there is a reset on them.

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.

More about Choosing the Right Fence Charger »

 

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

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.
