How to measure electric fence power ratings

Ask the experts! Wondering how to rate the power of an electric fence? We can help you. Electric fence chargers are rated in either joules or miles of fence they energize. 

There really is no industry standard for electric fence ratings... Each fence charger manufacturer estimates the power of the fencer using an equation of voltage, amps and time of fence shock... That is the joule rating...

some companies rate in miles of wire it can handle... For example 2 miles.. Well these numbers can be rounded up for marketing purposes... As we have seen in cheaper fence charger brands..

Make sure you buy a good fence charger with more power than you need. I think it's like building a barn... Always build it for twice the stuff you have.
