The flashing "fence ok" light didn't make it through the first season. I use this charger only in Aug & September to protect my grape vines from pests such as deer, opossums and raccoons. It charges only about 1,000' of 6 strand polywire, but it doesn't seem to shock enough. Is the flashing light serviceable?Date published: 2014-08-11Rated 5 out of 5 by Gunnerweav from Great products and service I purchased a fence charger for a great price, lowest on the internet for item purchased. Arrized quickly and was as expected. Intended use is to keep the squirrels from decimating my pecan and fig trees the way they did my pears this year. Looking foward to fringing some fur.Date published: 2016-07-27Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from A15 on cattle We had some issues with our Texas Longhorns lifting the fence to go under. Strung a wire low on the fence and attached it to the charger and now the cows stay in the pasture. Fence OK light is hard to see, even in the dark.Date published: 2011-11-02Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review Charger works excellently. Lots of power for my horse fence.

Can you use chicken wire itself as an electric barrier mounted on wooden post with insulators for those climbing critters that always seem to find a way in ???????We do not recommend electrifying chicken wire.Date published: 2016-10-31

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
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.
