Item Information

Delivering shocking power to your electric fence is easy when you attach a solar energizer to your line. This American FarmWorks 5-Mile Solar Charger features built-in solar panels and a 6-volt battery, allowing you to store up two-weeks of energy for the fence. Day or night, this AFW charger delivers all the containment power you'll need for your livestock operation. There's no need to plug in this energizer or lug batteries out into the field. Instead, this 0.10-joule output energizer electrifies up 5 miles of vegetation-free fencing -- that's enough to keep your animals in and, when properly designed, small predators and wildlife out. Use this American FarmWorks charger to manage horses, cattle, pigs and pets in the most remote locations with steel wire or poly fencing. Prior to use, be sure to charge the energizer by turning it to the off position and leaving it in the sun for 48 hours.

  • Energizes up to 5 miles of fence wire in moderate vegetation
  • Controls many types of livestock, horses, cattle, pigs and pets
  • Solar powered - ideal for remote locations with no access to electricity
  • Capable of operating day and night for up to 2 weeks with no sun
  • Solar power, 6-volt battery (included), 0.10 joule output, low impedance
  • Can be used with all types of electric fencing wire, including high tensile steel or aluminum wire, polywire, polyrope and polytape
  • "Fence OK" indicator light shows when charger is activated
  • Mounts quickly while offering a 360-degree rotation to allow solar panels to face the sun

we bought the 5 mile solar unit, IAW the directions, a 20 KV wire is used to connect energizer to both the ground and the fence, however you only have 30 KV wire. Will the 30 KV wire work?, what is the potential harm to the horse by using the 30 KV wire?

Asked by: Critterlover
A 30 KV wire can also be used. There would be no affect to a horse in using the 30 KV wire.

The fence ok light blinks. does this mean its working or not working properly. Thanks

The light on the energizer will blink with the voltage that pulses through the unit. We also recommend testing the unit with a fence tester periodically to ensure the unit is providing the proper output voltage.

will this charge high tensile wire?

Asked by: dougkelly0326
Yes.

how do you install on t post? why are batteries so difficult o access and no clear info provided, except to "connect" battery to charger. glad you cleared up the red light issue; again, no info. and how does one rotate device?

Asked by: jake novitzxki
The charger will slide down onto the T-post. To rotate, lift the charger, turn to the position desired, and slide back down on the T-post. This charger's casing is designed to protect the battery and the inner-workings from weather. The battery is already connected on a new charger, but will need to be charged for 3 full days of sun or with a trickle charger before connecting to the fence. We recommend removing the battery for winter storage.

my fence ok light is blinking red. Does this mean there is an issue with my fence line?

Asked by: per2004
The fence ok light will flash when the voltage pulses to the hot terminal on the energizer. This is normal operation of the unit. We recommend an electric fence tester to determine if the fence is working.

Will this product deter dogs without hurting them

Asked by: nmviper
This energizer can output approximately 8,600 volts under no load. We recommend a minimum of 1,000-2,000 volts on a fence line for dogs. Keep in mind that the amount of voltage seen on a fence line is determined by many factors such as type of wire, length of fence, grounding, etc. Electric fencing is not recommended for dogs under 10 lbs.

Does this work for deer bear etc...

Asked by: CentralNH
We recommend a minimum of 4000-5000 volts on a fence line to deter deer and predators such as coyotes and wolves. This energizer can output approximately 8600 volts under no load. Many factors will determine the amount of voltage seen on a fence line, such as type of wire, length of the fence, grounding conditions, etc. Our energizers are not recommended for deterring bears as they may become increasingly violent after coming in contact with an electrical fence. Please contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-ZAREBA (1-855-592-7322) with any questions.

How do you open the battery compartment to connect the batteries for initial hookup?

Asked by: Emily123
The batteries in this energizer should already be connected. Simply place the unit in the sunlight in the off position for 3-4 full sunny days to allow it to charge. To remove the plastic housing and access the battery, two screws can be removed on either side of where the T-Post can be mounted.

Will this charger work for cattle

Asked by: Prissy 1313
Depending on the size of the fence, as well as what type of wire is being used, this is a good option. We recommend a minimum voltage of 2,000-3,000 volts on the fence to contain cattle. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-5-ZAREBA (1-855-592-7322) for additional assistance in finding the best charger for your needs.

I live in desert where the "soil" is sand. Will this unit ground properly in sandy soil when the sand is dry most of the year? How far down should the grounding rod be driven? Thanks!

Asked by: MrSteve1
Ground rods should be driven 6-8ft into the soil. Very dry soil can limit the voltage on the fenceline.

I started using my charger at the end of March 2018.  All was well until today 5/6/18 when I noticed the charger isn’t providing any electric output.  How do I trouble shoot this?

Asked by: Jdphelps
The first thing we recommend is to determine if the energizer is working correctly. To begin, please turn the energizer off, remove both the fence and ground wires from the terminals, tun the energizer back on and test the energizer across the terminals with a fence tester. The probe of the tester will go on the ground terminal and the hook (that normally goes on the fence line) will go on the fence terminal. Please feel free to contact our Consumer Relations Team at 1-855-592-7322 for further assistance.
