    Yup, the small solar panel is fine. There is a 12v battery inside the box. It will put out up to 3.1 joule and something like 11k volts.

    The battery came with the fencer unit and solar panel/controller. I'ts a Parmak solar mag 12.

    The fencing is 14g steel wire. Pretty standard to keep out bears. Every couple weeks I take a shovel and scrape/kill all the weeds below the wires. I plan on putting something below them (maybe indoor/outdoor carpeting) eventually. That way I don't have to worry about a stray weed draining the battery.
