So, it turns out that a surge of electricity came through the wall outlet and zapped the transformer and circuit board of our energizer. This is a bummer - a $143 bummer to be exact. The worst part is to know that a little $10.50 surge protector could have protected it. We have them for the computer stuff but it didn't cross my mind to have one for the fence. All I say to myself is "duh" because I'm so tired of the "oh, well, live and learn" lame excuse for making a dumb mistake. I've opted to have the energizer repaired rather than buy a new one and hope I'm not stepping over a nickel to pick up a penny. There's a 30-day warranty with the repair and a 2-year warranty (ours expired 1 1/2 months ago) with a new energizer. At Premier 1 Supplies, of course.
