You would be better off using a bunch of 10000uF caps in place of one big one. It would be cheaper too.

Default Capacitors

If you decide to buy smaller ones and add them up may I
suggest a special purchase I made:
10,000 UF 63V Snap In 1 3/8" dia X 1 5/8" Tall $1.50ea
12,000 UF 50V Snap-In 1 1/4" dia X 2" Tall $1.29ea
These are pictured on my website at www.apexjr.com
under the new arrivals, use the link on the home page.
I do ship overseas and have other caps listed including
a 68,000Uf 50V at $5.95ea.

That is a great price! Go for the 10000uF at 63v times ten and you will be very satisfied.

Steve,

thanks for telling me this: I DON'T WANT TO KNOW YOUR PRICE! About 3 months ago I ordered 100x 10.000µF/63V, for $2.75 each at some US-company (from the US to Europe, so I paid a fine amount for shipping and import duties), and that was CHEAP (same capacitors as on your picture), at least, comparing to the usual prices in europe.

Thanks for letting me know I paid almost a double price...GRRRRRR

Grtz, Joris

Don't be mad. Before you get mad, check the performance of those two types first. Heavy duty, long life types _are_ more expensive than ordinary types.

I have checked Apex' prices and they do seem to be attractive

The problem is that Apex Jr's caps are high quality, too.

I bought a bunch of 1000uf/100v caps from them for 45 cents each and it turned out they were Panasonic NHG series which cost $5.93 at Digikey. The 10000uf/63v are Nichicons.

Default PART NUMBERS

I checked the part numbers :

10,000 UF 63V
Nichicon LLQ1J103MHSC 35MM X 40MM

1000 UF 100V
Panasonic ECA-2AHG102A 18MM X 35MM

The reason my prices are lower is that these items are
NEW Surplus and are excess inventory.

Hi,

mine are Elna LP5's. (10.000µF/63V)
I don't know which ones are better, but they're good enough for me.

By the way: for anyone that takes a look at the ApexJr website: search for the IEC Receptables and the US Military Lead Set...

Grtz, Joris
