solar fence chargers
« on: March 23, 2019, 04:59:21 PM »
Anybody have thoughts on solar fence chargers. I have used mainly Gallager. I have one pasture with no 110 access. I've used S20, s50 which I don't think they make any more. They have a S100 for sale now that I am considering. I have also used a B60 I think. Do you get better charge with a 12 volt battery and then charge them up all the time with like the B60. I think that there is also a S200 that is like a 600 dollar charger. Any thoughts.....brands etc

I also found an older B260 and B280. I have heard that you want one with high joule ratings.

As I understand it your Parmack puts out three joules. Thats a lot. I may have to try one.

Are the Parmak 12..........batteries replaceable? Do they burn out.

Yes the batteries are replaceable.  Yes they do die.

Not sure this is relevant, but grounding is underrated.

If soil drys out, consider running a grounding wire which can be connected to the stakes or at least a series of grounding rods.

I have a series of rods and I am scared frassless to touch it now even in dry weather.

Actually thinking of getting a weaker charging unit.

I would agree knabe. I have been know to drip 1500 gallon of water on ground rods. It seems like to me that the Gallagers.......solar built in chargers suck. Maybe the battery operated by a solar panel aren't bad. I just bought a 700$ Gallager(fricken insane)........6 joules.....powered by battery. Shoots a good spark. I wanna try a parmak.

I also have a couple cheaper paramak chargers that I started with.still use them on smaller less serious applications.very handy as they have small battery and solar panel all self contained.

It's 3 pieces hooked together. Battery is heavy. The solar panel is just bulky.
