Zareba® Battery-Powered Garden Protection Kit
Are you tired of dealing with small nuisance critters that constantly invade your yard and/or garden? The Zareba® Battery-Powered Garden Protection Kit can help you ward off rabbits, squirrels, groundhogs and other types of four-legged creatures — and it can keep them from coming back. This highly effective electric garden fence works by giving the animal a gentle electric shock when it comes in contact with the wire, causing it to flee while also conditioning it not to return. This battery-powered electric fence provides flexibility for precise placement and configuration. The efficient design enables two standard D-cell batteries to continuously power the charger and fence for as long as two months, depending on the fence and weather conditions, before a battery change is required.

As with any battery-operated electrical device, be sure to check and replace the charger’s batteries on a regular basis to ensure peak electric fence performance throughout the year.

I have yet to try it out against deer. The deer in our area are very persistent and I doubt this will work to discourage the horde we have around here. We finally fenced in the garden. But for smaller projects, flower gardens, young trees you are trying to get to take hold, this kit is good. Two D batteries, easy set up and you might actually have flowers through out the spring and summer.Date published: 2013-01-24Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review, Works well for small animals So far this fence kit seems to be keeping the small animals at bay. I have not personally seen any animals getting zapped but the plants are showing less signs of "pruning" by critters. So far even the deer seem to be keeping their distance but I have used other methods that seem to work for a while until the deer figure out a way around (or over)it. I only hope this one proves to be different! For small yards or small animal control I can highly recommend this product.Date published: 2012-09-22Rated 5 out of 5 by johnk from Goodbye groundhog After a groundhog ate through the gardens chicken wire fence and commenced to eat every leaf in sight we decided it was time to go electric. This kit fit the bill perfectly. We installed it in less than an hour, and the next day witnessed it in action when the groundhog came back for a snack. One zap on the nose and all we saw was groundhog butt heading for the hills. Very easy to install, great price, and piece of mind. We liked it so much we brought another one.Date published: 2015-08-16Rated 5 out of 5 by Louigee from Dog going through wrought iron fence Our dog started going through our wrought iron fence so we had to start taking him out on a leash. Our daughter also brings her two dogs over for exercise and they would get out. After two altercations with the charged wire, our dog and one of our daughters learned to stay away from the fence. The other dog must be smarter. Only took one altercation for him to learn. Really glad I ordered this battery powered fence charger and would highly recommend it to anyone.Date published: 2015-07-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review, Excellent product! Easy to install and discourages most small and large animals. There were a few pesky rabbits who figured it out and got to the lettuce. I guess it was too much temptation, and of course it won't keep the crows out of your corn. We had to make an adjustment to keep the rabbits from getting under it and hopefully that will work. I did not think it would keep the black bear we have around our mountain home out of the berry bushes, but so far he stays clear of it. Even a low impact zap on the nose may discourage him from trying to get to the blue berry bushes and fruit trees. Time will tell. We live in a huge wildlife area in the Blue Ridge Mountains so our garden and fruit bearing trees/bushes will give this product the ultimate test. I will comment with updates if it should fail to keep the animals out long term. So far it is doing a wonderful job.Date published: 2012-09-04Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous from Amazon Review, Pests no more I live in the woods and have quite a few animals nibbling on my garden. The Zareba Electric fence kit was very easy to install, and while it doesn't give a massive shock it definitely gives enough to get noticed. I have not had any further problems in the area I put this fence kit. If you have garden pests, this just might be the best way to keep them out besides putting up a zoo sized fence!Date published: 2012-10-10Rated 5 out of 5 by OldNav2 from Works great and easy-peasy installation Lost 6 of my melons to two persistent racoons. Installed two-wire fence in about 15 minutes. Only problem I had was installing the batteries correctly but I finally found the diagram on the cover. Turn it on in the evening after the dog has her last walk and turn it off in the morning before we go out again. All the remaining melons are intact, along with the tomatoes, cukes and squash.Date published: 2015-07-30Rated 5 out of 5 by Julitta from Great customer service! Not only did this item work for what I needed it for, which was to keep my pets in my yard they offer great customer service. I ordered it via telephone and was told that if I had problems installing it that I could call and they would walk me thru it step by step. I am at no means an expert in installing things like this so I took them up on their offer. They were great!Date published: 2016-08-28

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.
