Recharger for 12V SLA Fence Batteries
- 1.5 amp
- AC adapter with alligator clips
How to Use
A fully charged battery should have a resting voltage between 12.8V–12.6V.
Use a Fence & Battery Digital Tester to determine when 12V batteries need to be recharged.
Failure to maintain a sealed lead acid (SLA) battery will dramatically shorten the lifespan and/or permanently damage it.
- Immediately after recharging, allow the battery to “rest” for 45–60 minutes, then measure the voltage. A fully charged battery should have a resting voltage between 12.8V–12.6V.
- If storing batteries over the winter, periodically recharge to full at least once per month.
- Keep batteries from freezing, especially if discharged lower than 11.8V.
- Recharge frequently even if the battery is not fully discharged. Don’t allow the voltage to drop below 10.5V for an extended period. Premier’s all-in-one solar fence energizers contain advanced circuitry to recharge 12V batteries using the solar panel when exposed to direct sunlight.
- To extend battery life, use a 2 amp or less trickle charge. Repeated fast charging will reduce the capacity of the battery.

The recharger should have an indicator light showing the shared status. Green=charged, red=charging.

Premier sells many very good products however, I don’t recommend this particular charger. I purchased a new 12-volt battery for my Premier solar fence charger so I can swap the batteries out during the winter months when the sunlight in not sufficient enough to charge the battery. I was disappointed with this charger. It does work, but there is nothing even as basic as a red or green indicator light to let you know that it is indeed working or to let you know that the battery is charged. I can use my multimeter to test that the charger does work, it provides over 14 volts of to the battery when charging. I would recommend to someone to spend a little more money and get a charger that gave some more information about charging.

OK but ridiculously overpriced and the packaging was really poor.
