Excellent charger.
Excellent charger Works great. Lots of snap. I like the simplicity of this charger, and the fact that it's solar so I can use it wherever. My favorite charger.

Not what i expected for output this electric fencer said it was a 3 joule output, i'd say more like .5 output good for chickens or something, seems like a good strong unit though.

Does what is says - charges electrified fencing or netting
I bought this to charge 100' of electrified poultry netting, which isn't really it's primary purpose but it's working great. It sends an electrical pulse about once a second through the fence, and our chicks are quickly learning to not get too close. On the other hand, it's not so much juice that it will really hurt a person. I'm assuming it's enough to keep out any racoons or foxes too, but all I can say is that they haven't gotten to the chicks yet. An optional mounting bracket is available that I recommend getting, unless you have something else to mount this to. I wasn't sure initially if it was charging as the charge indicator stayed in the red for several days - then I realized you had to turn it ON for it to show how charged the battery is! Duh!

never fails
I had this fencer for almost 8 years with no problems at all, it just keeps working even in bad weather, keeps animals from jumping the fence.

I researched several brands of solar fence chargers and I truly believe this Parmak Magnum 12 is the best unit. Things I look for are the number of Joules and the so called "miles of fence" rating that has been determined under testing. Furthermore the Parmak is American made which I strongly support and replacement parts should they become necessary in future years are available at several on line suppliers.

Do I need any additional equipment to set up earmark magnum 12 unit ?
A shopper on Dec 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: We added a long ground rod and the jumper to our fence this is the best unit we've ever had its our second one the first lasted about ten years
Could you tell me how this Parmak Solar Fencer is mounted? Just need some general idea of how and where to mount it.
Edgar B on May 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Good afternoon

Pls send me your email and I can send u a picture. I have it mounted on an independent fence post away from the fence and animals. I did learn in going thru a class the other day that I do not have enough ground rods. I have 10 acres with 6 paddocks on a 30 mile charger.

Have a blessed weekend

Is the battery replaceable?
A shopper on Feb 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is. We have used these chargers for over 15 years and replaced the batteries several times in them. These are my favorite solar charges, easy to tell if they fence is working and they pack a punch.
Will this charger do a 500 square feet pasture ?
A shopper on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It currently covers to 5 acres pastures for us. It is not a “constant current” but it pulses. We have about 8 horses in these fields and they do not challenge the fence. You have to place it in a sunny area for it to work well.
How does it do with weeds ?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use 1 1/2" tape with long extentions on t posts. Tape is about 2ft above the ground. I try to weed eat between the t posts. I have not noticed any problems with the short to ground burning. Horses only. About 1 mile linearly of tape. I get about 4 -5kv on the tape.
