Best Solar Fence Charger for the Cost

Post by sstterry » Thu Feb 21, 2019 5:14 pm

We have had a ton of rain and flooding and I have had a whole section of fence knocked out along with two water gaps. I am considering installing electric and making some electric curtain water gaps. My question is what is the best solar fence charger that won't break the bank. I want to get the most joules I can and something that is dependable. ( I have searched the past posts). What are your current recommendations?

Parmak 12. They also have excellent customer service in my experience. Had to get a new insulator knob once, they mailed it out same day with zero hassle.

I have looked at the Cyclops and they seem pretty pricy. Am I correct that you have to buy a separate Solar kit to power them?

You sure lost a Tennessee Boy with that Alabama part... :lol:

That aside, their 32-joule charger looks like a beast that could knock back any bull.
