Why did you choose this? Store

Have had one for 4 years now never a problem, enlarging pasture needed another charger why switch brands this one we have been very happy with
Christine E on May 19, 2016
Our rental home had this on the pasture and it worked well. We rebuilt our home and barn after a forest fire destroyed them and decided to replace the downed fences with electric fence. This is a great charger.

I was wondering if this charger worked with your electric sheep netting?
Zachary D on May 7, 2016
Best Answer: We have never used this charger for netting. But we use it to charge 3-4 strands of hot wire in between sick wire on our horse fences. It covers several miles of fencing. We also use it to charge 4 strands of electric polyrope around our dog yard. As long as your netting isn't grounded, it really shouldn't matter whether it is charging netting or strands. The charger just send pulses of electricity through whatever it is attached to--netting or long strands of polywire/polyrope.

Hello, I want to install a hot wire on a wooden fence and have no experience. I am assuming this solar powered charger will works on a continuous loop meaning the wire will have to start and end in the charger. What else do I need other than the charger, wire, insulators, and some gate pieces?
thanks- JR
JR west on Jul 8, 2015
Best Answer: The hot wire from the charger is a continuous strand (or strands in the case of a multi wire fence) and does not return to the charger. The black or ground lead goes to a grounding rod that is driven several feet into the ground in preferably damp soil in proximity to the fence. The circuit is completed by the animal standing on the ground making contact with the hot wire. The animal itself then completes the circuit. You will need a grounding rod (or rods depending on your soil). I have seen recommendations for up to three connected together about 8 feet apart. I just use one with my poultry netting. Any place that carries fencing supplies will have a grounding rod kit. Or you can just get the rod (or rods), clamp, and wire to connect it from any home improvement store in the electrical department. Other than that you need your hot wire, insulators to attach it to your poles, and gate pieces as you say.

how often is a charger added in line? Like I have 2 1/2 arcres how many would I need to install? I read you should install at 5", 10" 15" up to 30" hight, lines which would equal 7 lines of fencing, does each line need a charger?
billy g on May 20, 2014
Best Answer: Billy, lets see if I can help. First of all this is a fantastic charger! I would tell you why here, but alas, that is not your question. This charger is rated for 25 miles or, about 130,000 feet (single strand that is). so if you run 4 strands of wire around 1 acre your going to divide that 130,000 by 4, or 32,500 linear feet of 4 strand fencing.

Now, an acre is about 200 x 200 or 800 perimeter feet. Multiply that by the 4 strands ,and you get 3,200 linear feet of coverage. Since this charge will cover about 32,500 linear feet, you theoretically should be able to cover approx. 10 acres!

Bottom line is that you should be VERY fine with 2-3 acres and this charger. As for one for each strand? No way, just charge one strand, and then "daisy chain" the others to each other and to the charged one. I have forgotten this critical step several times. Took forever to figure why the animals kept getting out.

In any event, best of luck to you.

Is this charger strong enough to deter deer from a small garden?
A shopper on May 2, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, it is. Personally I use this Solar Pack 6 French charger to keep critters away from my bee hives, though I personally recommend a product called Contech CRO101 Scarecrow Motion Activated Sprinkler for deer. I don't know whether Statelinetack carries the motion activated Contech.

What gauge electric wire is good for this product? Also how simple is the connection?
luke a on Mar 16, 2014
Best Answer: There are 2 "types" of electric wire that are used in the setup; the electric wire from the charger to the electric fence and the actual electric fence wire, which can be electric rope, electric tape (ribbon like product), or actual bare wire. The bare wire is relatively inexpensive, but my wife thinks it is too dangerous for horses. The recommended charger to electric fence wire is (of course) special high voltage (low amps) wire. I used the Zareba 12 1/2 gauge wire made specifically for that purpose. I use both electric rope and electric tape for our fences. The charger is attached to the electric rope, which in turn is spliced to an electric tape section. All the connections are quite simple, and it all works fine and there are various connectors to attach the charger wire to the electric rope or tape.. Very important is that you have a good grounding setup- (metal ground rods 6-8 feet long) driven into the ground and attached with the Zareba wire to the ground side of the charger, or your system will not work very well.

Hello, what fence tape goes with this specific solar panel?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2016
Best Answer: I'm sorry I don't have an answer for that. I use galvanized wire barrier....Hopefully someone else can help you.
I would think it would work with most fence tape. They are all pretty much the same when hooking to the power source.

Grounding wire size?
A shopper on Jun 29, 2016
Best Answer: We used a gap arrestor on the electric fence wire with 8 gauge copper going to an 8' ground rod. Then for the charger, go 16' from the ground rod and put down a second 8' ground rod with 8 gauge copper going to the charger. 85% of the time, lightning will travel from the wire to the charger. The better it is grounded, the better it will be protected.

How may jules does it put out?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2015
Best Answer: I think it puts out 1.2 Joules. It really packs a punch and seems just as strong as a hardwired electric fencer.
