Data for the F5A and F6A electrolytic. With screw terminal, if this is what you are looking for.

This is not what I search. On my capacitors written "HCG FA" series, not "F6A" or "F7A". Someone can help me find datasheet exactly to "FA" series?

Thanks. Yes, it is a fake. I requested the data sheet from the vendor who gave me the capacitors in China and they could not provide at all. Thanks again.

Default Another HCG FA Capacitor, Fake?

Hi All!

I also have a pair of suspected "Hitachi"(logo) HCG FA caps,
22,000 MFD 80 VDC 2NE3 105°, screw terminals, can measures 2" diam. by 5 3/4" long... Black color with gold lettering
Price was somewhat low, at 21 USD each.

I had planned to use them in a Power Amplifier power supply upgrade.

They look like "real" quality caps, but after receiving them, found one is open circuit... measures NOTHING at all!

The other one measures more than 20000 MFD with a 20000 MFD cap tester and holds voltage, but I'm unable to measure true capacity, ESR, DF etc. for the moment.

Anyway, I feel uncomfortable with them and maybe return them.

Do Anyone have seen this type? Could they perform, even if built in China? (Could it be that a factory in China can build good large capacitors, given their actual progress?

Any info will be appreciated.

Regards from Mexico City.

I stocked these caps which I got from my source in China
I bought a large quantity of:
22,000 Uf 100V
47,000 Uf 80V
68,000 Uf 100V
All good values and I thought these were real
and sold them as real... I have since discontinued
buying these and selling them..
I have had returns and have had many people use them
with good results. Main problem is there quality control
sucks and can't depend on quality..Not worth it for me to
get any more and have problems...

I recently bought American Made Adcom 22,000 Uf 100V
Computer Grade caps and will soon list them on my website
These are a little taller than the Hitachi's
Anyone intertested can email me.
