The AS50 is great for fences of up to 16 km (in perfect conditions) or for very cheeky animals who need a good shock! It comes with a 3 year warranty and is of excellent quality - made in Germany. There is no separate battery or solar panel to connect. Just place on the ground and push in your earth stake. Connect to the fence and switch on....... The AS50 is very easy to use.
Solar energisers are very reliable in the UK and will run your fence for 3 seasons of the year with no trouble. During the darkest winter months, you will need to give your energiser a few boosts from the mains (adaptor for the mains included). Solar energisers have rechargeable batteries inside. Your energiser will outlive the battery, so eventually you will need to change your battery (much like with a mobile phone). Replacement batteries cost approx. £37.
The AS50 comes with all the leads to connect to a fence.
For fences where a heavy 12v batteries are not practical this is a dream - it's so user friendly!
