"New old stock" 3900uF 100V capacitors
Need advice:

There is a listing on ebay for "new old stock" 3900uF 100V Panasonic capacitors (a lot of 100). I asked the seller if they had a date of manufacture. He replied June 30, 1988.

I am planning to build a power supply for a modified ADCOM GFA-555 for which I need 4 15,000 uF/100V capacitors.

Question - would these still be OK to be used in a 4 parallel (16 total) configuration? There is enough space in the cabinet.


PS I am in no way related to/have an association with the seller!

Picture says July 1982.

25 cents the pop is very cheap though, a box full is likely worth over $500 new. If only half is still good, it remains a good deal.
Reforming is the ticket, as usual.
You're welcome to sell some of the remaining 84.

Thanks for the advice!
I've also now learnt how to read the date code (YY week) on these :xeye:
Guess I will try and bid on these.
