Review RateHappy as can be !
Best charger I ever owned , til lightning struck . Lightning is a problem with all fence chargers . I buying the same one if I can find it !
Review RateNuisance animal control
Works as advertised. Great for keeping deer and other pests animals out of my garden
Review RateGreat Charger
I have used the Zareba 50-mile AC Powered Low Impedance Charger for several years and am quite happy with it. I bought another as a spare to keep on hand in the event the electrodes wear out or it gets hit by lightning. However, their rod insulators are terrible. I need insulators for the 5/8" (#5) rebar I use as posts. Zereba post insulators (for wire and tape) are near impossible to thread correctly, and they are not open on the end to slip around the post - instead you need slide it over the top of the post. Try doing that when you have 7 wires above the one one you need to replace. The designers of these terrible insulators probably never put up a fence in their lives. The insulators by parmakusa are far superior - easy to install and tough.
Review RateWorks Great, Even With Weeds!
I purchased the "Zareba® 50 Mile AC Powered Low Impedance Charger" a few weeks ago. We upgraded from the solar chargers by the same company mainly because after 4 years of use, they were wearing out and my donkeys were learning the shock just wasn't enough to keep them in the fence. After reading the descriptions and reviews to find the right one, we chose this charger, mainly because we do have quite a bit of weed contact on our bottom strand of fence. This fence still gives a good jolt, even with a decent amount of weeds. The best part? The donkeys are still in the pasture!
Review RateI'm a happy customer!
Very pleased with my new Zareba Charger... The customer service at the Zareba center in Pennsylvania was outstanding! Very personable, helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. Good customer service goes a long way with me so you can bet I'll be shopping Zareba for all my future fence charging needs.
Review RateVery happy with my purchase
I ordered my zareba 50 ac charger and received it in about 4 days and at a huge savings over farm supply store. I am electrifying three strands of high tensile wire around 15 acres containing horse. It really does a great job and I love the convenience of ordering on line and the fast service
Review RateAmazon ReviewTo this point, the fencer has worked fine. We move our cattle a lot during the winter from field to field.c fencer has made all of the moves.
Review RateAmazon Review, ouch, it worksFirst installed it and couldn't get a reading with the "strobe light " reader. hard to see. checked the fence for shorts umteen times and still couldn't see any action. animals disregarded it. finally I found a ground wire touching the hot wire. Accidently got zapped and got a welt and it was sore for about 20 minuets. I have a couple of miles of fence wire going through moderate to heavy weeds and digital tester indicates 8.7 kilovolts. That works for me.
- 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.
