Default 15000 uF capacitors?

Hi all,

I need one pair of the BEST 15000 uF capacitors, but first of all I need them to be as small as posible.

Any idea where I can find such a thing?


Thank you

The bigest 63V they make is 10000 uF. I need 15000.

This may or may not help you but I bought a pair of 15000uF 80V caps from eBay that were 35mm diameter and 70mm high. They were made by Cornell Dubilier.

Try the audio grade Nichicon from Mike Percy audio. Based on my experience they are excellent. I am not sure why they need to be 15000 vs. just 10000. There is no difference I can think of.

Default 15000 uF

I am sold on the Panasonic TS-series of aluminum electrolytic caps. There are several sub-series, like TSNH (long-life and high ripple-current, low-ESR), TSU (85C general purpose), TSUP (mini-size 85C), TSHB (105C, hi-voltage, long life, low-ESR, high-ripple) and others. All are snap-mount, so if this is not what you need, you might want to check out the Panasonic screw-terminal caps.

My favorite is the TSHB for the high-voltage section of most AC-DC SMPSs. For the low-voltage sections (63V and lower, I like the TSHA series.

Just my $0.02 worth,

Steve

Paralleling 2 caps of hald the value. might actually end up being smaller, or might at least might be easier to fit into limited space. Two smaller caps are also a lot easier to find. Performance should be the same. The voltage of each would have to meet the voltage you mentioned though...
