I have a couple Zareba brand solar chargers that I bought at TSC. They've been ok so far. I noticed that TSC stopped selling that brand around here anyway. I did buy one at Menards as well. It was a special order item but it was cheaper than tsc when they had Zarebas and I got the 11% rebate. Cousin ordered a solar charger from Valley Vet and really likes it. I just can't remember the brand he bought right now though.

I just looked at Valley Vets website and it's the Magnum Solar Pac 12. It's $300 but he really likes it. When my Zarebas die I might look into one of them.

I put him onto a Zareba since Kansas had good luck with them. TSC doesn't carry them but Amazon does and he can have it tomorrow.

Thanks.

One thing I have learned is that the 12 volt solar chargers put out quite a bit hotter spark than the 6 volt ones, but of course the are also quite a bit higher.

Find a way to lock up and secure those chargers, boys, or they'll disappear. Don't care where you live, the tweakers/meth-heads have figured out those chargers are $100 bills hanging on posts.

I'm a food plot seed dealer and this year the number of customer complaints about stolen fence chargers has exploded in my territory of MN, WI, SD, ND, MI.

Obviously, word has gone around that any electric fence that doesn't end at the barn has a nice payday attached to one end for the tweaker looking for a quick fix. They must just cruise the back roads looking for them and then come back and night and nail 3-4 of them a night.

Several of my customers this summer have mentioned they had units nabbed in WI and SE MN this year or last year. Aparently, out on the net somebody has plans for how to make the units harder to steal by putting them up a pole and then spking the pole with "bear boards" so it can't be climed and can't be cut down with a chainsaw.

Just a warning to watch out.
