Look at the joule rating, the bigger the number the better. Many of the lower priced solars are very low powered and will ground out if a couple wet weeds touch the fence.
I see people spend thousands on fence posts, concrete, wire, insulators , tools labor, then to save 40 or 50 bucks on a charger, and buy a under powered unit that doesnt hold up or keep the horses in.
Notice it has 40 times the output. Works great, doesnt ground out if weeds or brush touches the fence. It is an AC unit. But I would look hard at AC units. They are longer lasting don't require batteries and have way more output than the solar units.
I can not use a AC unit or I would, This is a new piece of land with NOTHING on it, we are getting water and fence done for now, I am out of luck on electric for a while lol. Thanks for the help! What about this 1 ?? http://www.electric-horse-fence.com/..._powered_4.htm
We bought a Gallagher and it worked great for 1 year then quit. Replaced the battery and it lasted for 2mths. Dead again. We've decided that solar was a great idea but it turned into daily checking for charge on the tape and that gets to be just too much trouble. Switched back to an electric and haven't had any problems. Hope your solar works better than ours did.

Thats a .5 joule unit, would probably be perfect for you, just keep the fence line reasonably clear. Weeds and a few branches here and there wont hurt it.
