where is this product made and is it suitable for cattle?
steve s on May 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My pasture is 1/4 mile square. I am using the 5 mile charger for 1900 lb cow and 1000 lb. They were stinkers and tearing my wood fence down. They now respect the wood fence with the addition of the solar on the inside. My little ones just smell and walk away. The braided and tape wires were NOT the thing to put up. Use a heavier wire or they will blow right threw it.
how do you charge the solar charger the first time?

Will it work with Electrobraid fence?
Cindy M on Sep 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It will work with any electric fence but you have to connect normal wires to the terminal and then connect those to the fencing material. You can even just wrap the wire around the fence a bunch of times as long as it's secure. The best way is to find an adapter. You can make them using ground rod clamps, large bolts with washers, or even just large alligator clips.
Does it charge with power off?
A shopper on Mar 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I can't say for sure, not knowing the switching controls of the charger, but the solar cells are soaking up solar energy, so it should. I've had mine protecting my bee hive since last April & have had no intrusions from pests. It's great!
will i need wire to connect it to fence?
A shopper on Sep 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can run your electric fence wire right to the hot side, (red knob), of the charger. I also run my fence wire through a piece of red rubber air line hose from the fence insulator to the charger. Make sure your fence wire is insulated and not grounded. Next, you will need a ground rod for the ground side of the charger. It is recommended to have two ground rods but if your soil is moist you can get by with one. Then you will need to run a wire from the ground rods to the green terminal on the front of the charger. The idea is to have a hot wire on insulators running around the perimeter and anything that is grounded and touches the hot wire will complete the circuit to ground and get shocked.
