Question about Parmak Solar Fence Charger
I bought a Parmak Solar Pak 6. I wanted to use it to keep bears out of a camp. The area enclosed is about 100' x 100' with three wires of Basygard Light duty wire. Although is has some shock it does not seem to have enough to keep the bears out. When I touch the live wire there is very little shock. Should I get a bigger unit or is this one not installed correctly.
The Parmak Solar 6, though they claim is more, is less then 1/2 a joule of output power. Even if you maintain enough voltage to shock the bears there is not enough power behind that voltage to hurt them. In our experience, you need at least 5 joules to really stop bears.

When you touch the wire, you are probably wearing shoes, which ground you,
touching it barefoot or kneeling on bare knees should provide a bit more jolt.
take your multi-meter, shove one probe in the ground and touch the wire with the other and you should get a nice reading
