I wasn't paying attention and bought this RC-8 collar to go with my High Tech Pet X-10 system. Since it came fully charged, it took me awhile to realize that the X-10 charger won't work with the RC-8 collar. In fact, the RC-8 uses disposable batteries.
The collar worked fine with the fence and my big lab didn't seem to mind having the collar on at all. When first exposed to the fence, he skirted the perimeter, retreating quickly a couple of times when he got a quick shock, and then seemed comfortable with the area that was his (a couple of acres).
Because I can buy an X-10 collar for the same price as a couple year's worth of RC-8 batteries, I'm going to buy a new RX-10 collar and use the RC-8 as backup.
