This novel electric fencer from Lacme can hold its charge for four to five years, thanks to an energy-sipping pulse setting and optional 25-watt solar panel.


Even without solar input, the pulse setting increases battery life from 15 to 100 days. The Secur 500 is available in the UK through Agrifence UK and comes with a corkscrew anchoring mechanism. After four to five years the battery may need to be replaced, the firm says.
