Fence Testers (Voltage Readers)
Use one of the fence testers below to ensure that your fence is working properly. (An ordinary voltmeter cannot read the charger's pulsed high-voltage output.) Ideally you should have 4 kilovolts (kv) on the line, although bears will often be shocked successfully with far less, and campers should probably be satisfied with 2 kv. Should there ever be any doubt about whether the charger is working properly, a fence tester is a wonderful trouble-shooting tool.
