Electric fence Batteries & Mains Chargers
Electric fence batteries 9 and 12 volt plus accessories
Electric fence energisers are the driving force of any electric fence. They are often powered by electric fence batteries , 9 volts or 12 volts.
The advantages are obvious: with a battery powered electric fence, you are completely independent of a fixed power source (230V). You can set up and operate your electric fence practically anywhere. No complex cable laying required!
With our electric fence batteries, you can supply the electric fence with energy everywhere and literally energize your electric fence. The batteries are characterized by a constantly high voltage curve and a long service life.
Our fence batteries are the heart of a mobile or remote electric fence system. They guarantee the highest level of safety for your herd while requiring only minimal human effort for maintenance and servicing. Reduce the time and effort spent on fencing your pasture or paddock and keep your animals safely on their assigned property.
Which battery do I need?
To determine what battery is best for you, it is important to know the specifications of your energiser. Do you have a 12v energiser or 9v energiser?
The energisers on Electric Fence Online all describe what batteries are suitable for the energiser. Either 9v batteries or 12v rechargeable batteries. In some cases the enrgiser is supports both 12v- and 9v batteries.
Do you have any questions about the battery for your device? Please reach out to our customer service through either phone or e-mail.
The Ah of the battery shows the capacity of the battery. The higher the Ah of a battery, the longer it will take to drain it. To calculate the time before your battery will become empty, one needs the mA of the energiser.
If you would like to operate your electric fence system more independently, you could choose to connect a solar panel to your energiser. This way, the battery charges itself in sunshine and daylight as if by itself. This means even less maintenance and inspection.
Be aware that combining your electric fence battery to a solar panel is only possible with 12v batteries. The advantage of using a12v battery is that it can be recharged over and over again. One can recharge the battery either using a battery charger or connect it to one of our solar panels.
When using 9v batteries, one should carefully dispose of the battery every time the battery has given up its power. 9v batteries are therefor only intended for one-time use.
Here we recommend you a battery energiser which can be operated with a 12 volt battery. This protects the environment and at the same time makes the use even more flexible. Another option could be one of the solar energisers, which have a battery included and are designed for constant recharging.
We are frequently asked by users of 12v energisers why a deep cycle or leisure battery is needed. A simple car bettery could do the job as well right? Eventhough a car battery is also 12 volts, it is not designed to be deeply discharged.
A car battery may well be sufficient to keep your fence running for a day or two. This allows you to recharge your leisure battery. However, we cannot recommend the use of car batteries with electric fencing for anything more than this.
How long will my battery last?
The formula to calculate the battery life is:
Battery life in hours = Battery capacity (mAh) / Current draw (mAh)
As our batteries are described with Ah, it is important to know: 1 Ah = 1.000 ah.
Battery life in hours =
175.000 mAh (Battery capacity) / 24 mAh (Current draw) = 7.292 hours (303 days)
Shorting-out on the electric fence line through vegetation touching the fence will not affect the life of the battery. Vegetation touching the line is only affecting the voltage running through the fence.
Electric fence batteries are available from many different brands. At electric fence online we offer several strong brands like Gallagher, Hotline and Pulsara. These brands guarantee you high reliability and quality at favourable prices.
When selecting your electric fence battery, it is not necessary to match the brand with the energiser you have. However, most manufacturers test their devices with batteries of their own brand. So the promises the manufacturer makes on the performance is based on using batteries of their own brand.
