Charging your portable fence

I'm looking for a portable easy fence charger for small fences I set up for camping. I'd prefer to use a high line or picket line but sometimes I have to break out the portable fencing. What do you use to keep a charge?
Prefer something inexpensive

We use an electric fence charger we got at Tractor Supply. It will work on either 4 D batteries or you can wire it to use a bigger battery. We use a car battery as to not worry about the batteries dying in the middle of the night.


There is no joy equal to that found on the back of a horse.

We probably have that same set up, as ours runs off of either as well. :)
It is awesome! We use it for temporary grazing around out property as well. :)
