Subject: RE: Energizers

Driftless SW Wisconsin
A thing to remember with fencers is that volts are cheap, joules are not.

I run 2 Gallagher 6 joule 120 volt fencers that usually measure 7 to 10 kvolts on a tester depending on weed pressure. A key is to leave them on all of the time to keep weeds down.

Its tough for a solar charger to keep a battery charged enough to keep 6 joules in a stretch of cloudy midwest days.. Use a lightning arrestor and a surge protector on a 120 volt charger.

I feel a 6 joule fencer is a good middle ground between power for cattle and safety for people.
