In contrast to a mains or battery-powered electric fence, a 9V electric fence can supply your electric fence with power completely without a mains connection.
Depending on the device, a battery lasts for several months and requires little maintenance, as no ongoing recharging is necessary.
Important: If the electric fence battery is discharged, it can no longer be recharged. However, the empty battery can easily be replaced with a new one.
9-volt electric fencers are also characterised by their small, handy design and their low weight compared to battery-powered devices, which makes them particularly attractive for mobile use.
A 9 V electric f ence is ideal for small to medium fence lengths, mobile pastures, portion pastures and paddocks.
The compact and lightweight design of battery units also makes them the perfect choice for use at tournaments and equestrian trails.
As a battery device is somewhat less powerful compared to battery and mains devices, the pasture fence to be electrified should also be well maintained, as heavy vegetation on the fence has a noticeable effect on the fence voltage. The voltage drop that this can cause may not be compensated for by the electrical output of a 9 volt electric fence unit.
If you want to use your electric fence exclusively for mobile use, but do not want to constantly recharge a battery, the purchase of a 9V electric fence is also a good idea. Depending on the model, an entire grazing season can be covered with one battery.
As the name suggests,9V electric fencers can be operated with a 9V battery. In addition, you have the option of using a 12-volt Super Vlies battery. The maximum output energy of the 9 volt electric fence is limited by the power of the batteries. By using a Super Vlies battery, correspondingly higher energies can be realised.
In our shop category Energy supply you will find our wide range of high-quality and high-performance electric fence batteries, as well as rechargeable batteries for supplying your 9 V electric fence device.
All horizont battery devices can also be upgraded to solar operation with a solar panel.
The dual devices also offer connection to the 230 V mains.
Large and small battery cases fit all 9 volt battery devices. The horizont electric fence batteries also all come with connection cables, so no additional accessories are needed to connect them to the 9 V electric fence device.
If you decide to purchase a 9 V electric fence unit from our professional series (ranger or turbomax), an additional fence tester is not absolutely necessary, as corresponding integrated features of the electric fence units control and display the fence voltage.
Large fence systems or heavy vegetation on the pasture fence require higher device outputs than a battery-operated 9 volt electric fence device can provide for maximum herding security. In these cases, it is advisable to purchase a 12-volt electric fence (rechargeable battery unit) for mobile use or a 230-volt mains unit if access to mains power is available.
