does all it claims


Here`s Hoping Reviewed by Mary-Ann on 22 Jul 2015

Nice compact little energiser, easy to assemble & fit to the fence. Audible warning when on is a more easily observed warning than a flashing light in bright sunlight. It arrived within a week of ordering. I am just hoping it lasts as long as the one it`s replacing which lasted 25 years!!
