Why Choose an AC-Powered Electric Fence Charger?
Many property owners prefer reliable AC-powered electric fence chargers such as the Zareba® AC-Powered, 5 Mile Charger over other options such as battery- or solar-powered units, particularly when easy access to an AC power source is available. While all three types can deliver an effective power solution, an AC-powered unit can help you avoid the power interruptions that come with battery failure or limited exposure to sunlight.
Protect your electric fence charger from the weather by placing it indoors in a moisture-free place, or outdoors in a covered enclosure.

Review RateZareba is the gold standardLove our new Zareba 5 mile charger, replacing a Gallagher that lasted about 5 years.
Review RateDog WAS climbing over backyard fenceI have had the electric fence up for about three weeks now and the dog learned quickly that he didn't like the outcome by going near the chain link fence with the electric wire attached. It was extremely easy to install and was working within hours. We have a husky who learned to climb over the chain link fence. We installed the wire at his nose height which is a couple of feet off the the ground. So far so good. We have had no dog climbing issues. This is a great solution for any dog owners who has a similar problem.

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/learning-center/compare-electric-fence-supplies/fence-chargers/resources/charts-and-guides">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.
