Default SMD Capacitor ICE-power

I'm looking for an SMD capacitor that is broken on an ICE-power module.
Please tell me what brand it is and where I can get it.

It's a standard (ie. non-special) electrolytic capacitor.
It's value can be read as 22microFarad (of capacitance), 35Volts (max. voltage).

I don't know about local shops/suppliers in your area, but as it is a fairly standard type, every reasonable electronics guys should be able to sell you one (i.e. an expensive one would be Elfa).

Another good question would be why it failed!
Looks like you accidentally ripped it off...

Thanks a lot sek.

So you think I should use a standard cap, and not a low impedance cap..?

About the question why it failed...
I think it must have happened during the shipping, It was like this when I received it.

Those ICE modules are pretty heavy due to the aluminium and SMD parts are fragile. A normal private person will probably underestimate what the modules will be put through during shipping. => careful packaging and much of chock absorbing stuff.

The one that broke off is a standard type, so no low ESR type is required.

I don't know what it's supposed to do in the circuit (I don't know the schematic), so I can't say what a low ESR type would do here.

Then I will go for the standard type.

Thanks again.

It would seem to me that if you purchased it from ICEpower that it would have been packed properly, and that they would most likely remedy it.

It is probably a bypass for the +/- 12 V rails, judging by its location.
