Nope not late to the conversation. I borrowed one till I can get another. Yep charger went bad, again. Zareba being what it is will not get another chance. The best thing I found about them is their customer service. Their product is sorely lacking.
I am still looking, waiting for inquiry responses, holiday and offices being closed early stinks when trying to obtain information LOL.
I went for the 5 mile, I figured it was more than enough....turns out I was wrong I guess. I am still looking, and Rascal is busy gettin a charge out of the old one I borrowed. It'll zap you, that's for sure.
I begged my friend to just sell it to me. It's almost 30 years old. There is nothing in it you can't replace cheaply and easily. AND it is waterproof/bug proof! She told me I could have her hubby before I could have that charger. It is her back up. She bought a new one about 10 years ago and this one was hanging out in the tack room as a spare. She has drafts and they love to run down a fence if it isn't electrified.
I'll post whatever I wind up with and a review on ease of use etc. LOL if anyone is interested.
