Winter Battery Checks

An electric fence is as good as the power that supplies it!F1C1

As winter draws in it is time to double check that your battery is in tip top working order.

Battery Tips:

  • Think about covering your battery. As the temperatures drop so does the battery's efficiency.  Stand your battery on a wooden box, cover with a bucket to keep frost, snow, ice off.  Make your battery like you when you go out ... cover up, stay as dry as you can and keep warm!
  • Freezing weather on an unprotected battery will potentially lead to more shortages'.
  • Ice covered batteries can short out.Battery
  • Don't leave your battery sitting on a concrete floor in-between charges.
  •  Recharge your battery more often during winter months.
  • Check your fence more regularly with your fence tester.

PS: Don't forget your insulators will need a check in freezing weather. If they are earthing out your battery will run very low very quickly and Mr Fox could be very happy.

 

We have a range of batteries and battery chargers in our online shop.  If, however, you are not sure what you need please just ask... we'd be happy to help advise you:
