I put it in the sun for three days to make sure it had a good, full charge and I use it on my portable fencing system for my four horses. I fence in 5 acres at a time and it works great. I have yet to replace the battery and it keeps the fence hot so the horses don't challenge it to get out. This thing is out in all kinds of weather and has yet to lose its charge. I am in the process of buying two more for my other pastures for rotational grazing. Keep up the good work.Date published: 2014-06-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review I was pleasantly surprised to find that the charger works even when it rains. Full fence charge is received even at the end of the run just like the start of the run. I used poly-wire and this charger works great. Had to get a poly-wire connector but the tech help line assisted me and even offered locations of stores that carried the connector. I am very pleased with this charger and my 2 dogs have not dug out once since I installed the hot wire.Date published: 2014-05-26Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous from Uses 4 V not 6V as stated on back of unit Statements on back of unit stated it uses 6 V battery, and on front stated 4V. It actually uses 4 V, so my 6 V trickle charger isn't appropriate. Note that Zareba recommends back-up battery or trickle chargers for their solar chargers, and 6V trickle chargers are much more common than 4V. Also 4 V battery is more expensive than the 6 V for the ESP3 series, and based on website, Zareba only sells 6 V trickle charger. Don't recommend this unit.Date published: 2013-06-29Rated 1 out of 5 by Amurt99 from Terrible I bought this for food plots last year and could literally grab the wire and barely feel anything. I even would lick my finger as they say deer's noses are wet. Sure enough... The deer cam right into a double stranded food plot which is the first time I've ever seen it. Literally better off putting a welcome sign up.Date published: 2016-04-11Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from electric fence - Originally posted on TractorSupply.com I recently purchased a solar charger to electrify my fence. The specs for the charger were clear and accurate, and the ordering easy. My order was delivered promptly, I am very satified with my on-line experience.Date published: 2012-03-08Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review In use for 2 month, works like a charm for my garden, voltage > 7000 volts definitely keeping out deer.Date published: 2014-07-07
What replacement battery for 2 mile solar chargerWe recommend our Fi-Shock® Battery for SS-440, SS-740, ESP2M (model 301-569R) for this energizer.Date published: 2016-11-09
Where do I find ordering information and specs for the battery recharger for the 2-Mile ESP2M-Z model fence charger? When we have several days of storms, the solar charger is not sufficient to recharge the battery.We recommend our Zareba® 4 Volt Solar Trickle Charger (model 4VSTC) to charge the battery externally. When using a trickle charger, a full charge should be achieved within 18-24 hours. A solar charger can operate without daylight for approximately 2 weeks if the battery was fully charged before the lack of sun.Date published: 2016-11-09
Bought the 2 mile solar charger. How long will it hold a charge without direct sunlight....if we have a few consecutive cloudy days?This solar powered energizer can maintain charge for up to two weeks before the battery would need to be recharged.Date published: 2016-11-04
I have a ESP2M-Z that is 2-3 yrs old. Front says 4 V battery, but back says warning "Use only 6 V rechargeable battery. Do you have the correct battery for this unit? It is the same size as the 4V battery.
- 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.
