RE electric fence

Lowes here is selling a kit for $80 that consists of a battery powered charger with posts that will support a single strand of charged wire. They include a hundred feet in the kit. Does this seem like it would work? I would add a second wire so there would be strands at say three and ten inches. This setup has no secondary fence to provide a ground. I don't know if a groundhog would figure out jummping the wire. What do you think?

Too many details missing. What are trying to keep out or keep inside the fence? Are you exceeding the wire length spec for the charger? What kind of material is in the additional wire you're adding? Why would you need a separate fence for a ground (separate wire maybe)? Will the fence have fencing material? If so, will these posts support the fencing material and act as physical barrier? Is this in reference to goats in a recent prior post? Dave

stake driven into the ground to complete the loop when an animal is touching the ground and the charged wire. In some other setups there is a grounded barrier fence which acts as the ground. The charger is good for a mile and I'm talking 200' of wire.
