In general, we recommend one extra battery for every tenth cattle collar.
The solar panel and battery are dimensioned to last three months when used with large pastures. Some will experience that the batteries last longer, while others will see them run out faster.
Sheep / Goat Battery
We recommend one extra battery per 10th collar for sheep/goat. The number of extra batteries varies between customers and we therefore recommend this as a starting point. Those with the longest battery life have relatively large pastures, little vegetation inside the pasture and a lot of sun.
It takes between 8-10 hours to fully charge a battery.
The batteries cannot exceed a 30% state-of-charge when shipped, because of shipping restrictions.
We recommend to fully charge all batteries before training with Nofence starts.
Sheep / Goat Charger
To fully charge a battery you need approximately 8-10 hours. When you receive the collars, the batteries will be approximately 30% charged (because of shipping restrictions). We recommend that you fully charge your batteries before you start training your animals.
You need one pair of Shelter Beacons for every shelter. For large, or complex barns/shelters we recommend additional beacons. If this is the case, we recommend that you contact our sales team for advice.
