Avoid “Continuous Current” Chargers for Electric Fence
The summer grazing season is in full-swing and the heat and wind is drying our spring forage. So it’s a good time to remind everyone about the importance of using a “pulse-type” fence energizer with electro-plastic conductors (e.g., electric netting, tapes, ropes and twines.)
It’s important to avoid fence chargers labeled as “continuous current”. When a conductor connected to a “continuous current” charger contacts a conductive path to the soil (slightly green weed, twig, stray piece of metal wire, or dry weed that’s wet from dew or rain), a continuous flow of electricity flows down this path to the soil creating an almost audible “buzz.”
This continuous flow is dangerous! It will melt any conductive strands of plastic when the fence touches a green weed… and it can start a fire if the right conditions exist.

That's why we advise folks to always use a "pulse-type" fence energizer. (All energizers sold on Premier's website use an intermittent pulse and are suitable for use with electric netting.) If you're not sure what type of energizer you have, or you would like expert advice on choosing the right energizer for your situation, call us toll-free at 800-282-6631.

IntelliShock® electric fence energizers are able to reduce energy demand when the fence’s voltage is high—due to fewer weeds touching the fence. This occurs in fall and winter for most fences and occurs all year for some horse, cattle and deer fences. As a result, an IntelliShock unit’s battery is more likely to remain charged through the low sunlight days of autumn and winter.
All units feature an adjustable solar-panel for seasonal light availability. No buried lead-out wires or underground cables are required.

Customer Reviews
Solar IntelliShock® 30Robert T. from Wisconsin

Very well built and solid. Constructed to keep water out. Easy access to the battery. Being able to charge the battery is a plus for Spring start up. The new design ground stake is great for quick set up and portability. This is our second Premier brand fence charger we have in use. We won’t be buying the competition’s anymore.

Solar IntelliShock® 60Gina D from California

Super easy to use. Videos on the website are great. I called in with questions and had great customer service. I will definitely order more from Premier 1 Supplies.
