Know your pain

Lots of good info here on Energizers: https://www.gallagherfence.net/pages/selecting-an-energizer
I have a Gallagher S22 solar energizer driving a 4-wire (2 hot, 2 ground) fence on 3 sides of a square 1 acre lot (4th is a rock wall). The key is that we have to have ground wires here in Kona as the lava rock is not conductive enough. The pigs have to hit a hot and a ground. We had 3 wires (hot-ground-hot) and one smart pig found an area with enough slack to squeeze under the lower hot wire. We strung the 4th wire (ground - lowest point) and no problems after that until the battery died. It's a 6V sealed lead-acid, so you can probably get replacements at Daleco.
I hired Waimea Ranch Services to install my fence. Good folks. Not the cheapest but worth every penny.
