Re: Help to bring cost down for 15 Caps

You want the second link, which is Rubycon ZLH, as opposed to the first, which is NCC KMG. KMG is a general purpose series.

Re: Dell Optiplex GX260 - Advice Needed for Polymodding Motherboard

Just a piece of advice - give some attention to the PSU as well... Dell uses several OEMs for their PSUs...

Depending on the one used in your particular machine, the caps may need to be replaced....

Re: Help to bring cost down for 15 Caps

I recommend contacting member Behemot (https://badcaps.net/forum/member.php?u=15285) who can hook you up with small quantites at a reasonable price and reasonable shipping.

Re: Modern Samxon and Teapo caps much better these days?

Yes, I have a SP-450 here (SmartPower) I re-capped years ago... There's something else wrong with it. It's in my "PSUs that have odd issues other than caps pile". It works for the most part, but...

Nah I find them in the trash... People are abandoning them en masse and adopting inexpensive IPTV subscriptions instead.

The way it works is, if the box was a rental and the person threw it out,...

Sorry to resurrect this thread, but I just had to comment on Samxon SK.

Our local cable provider started using these in the cable boxes... Where an identical model would hade had Japanese caps,...

Re: Are this caps something special?

I doubt it.. It could be you butchering the traces on the board with the iron... If those capacitors leakes, they may have weakened the traces or pads.

The caps you linked to are fine... I...

Re: Any more info on counterfeit Nichicons?

I ran a PSU with Behemot's caps for several years, 24/7. They were his custom-ordered 16V 3300uF UCC KZN series. Quite genuine sir.

If you want proof, then that's not a problem (pics, esr...

Re: Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

Pay no heed to what brethin said, you were right to post and it is a good post.

Yes, there are definitely issues with FC. I set aside all my FC and no longer use them in my repairs.

Re: Did I just bought a fakecap ?

Of course they're fake.

I have never seen Panasonic FL sold to the masses that were genuine, nor are they even manufactured any longer.

Re: kemet

Kemet electrolytics and polymers are low-tier Chinese products and should be avoided.

Their polymer caps are priced very competitively - but there's a reason for that. They are not on par with...

Re: Wiring ethernet in new office

I've had good results with the BCM4708 but not the BCM4709.

I think Broadcom is playing games with the engineering of the die bumps or the underfill, but for whatever reason, the BCM4709 just...

Re: Infamous Rubycon MFZ... Current recommended replacements???

I managed to buy a small quantity of Nichicon HZ 6.3v 3300uF for old jobs, but you don't need to use Nichicon HZ.

You can use something like this instead:...

Re: Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

LXA, LXV and LXF are obsolete though, no?

Elna is difficult to get, neither Mouser, Digikey or Newark/Farnell stock them, unless things have changed.

Look at the datasheet for PX. PX is a...

Re: Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

So PL and PR (obsolete) and PS/PM are to be avoided in that case...

So since FC is out of the picture, we're left with PW and LXY/LXZ for good, enduring non-aqueous parts...

I'm going back on...

Re: 4700uF 6.3v and 3300uF 16v in a 10mm Diameter

I disagree with this characterization. I think SMG uses better materials than KMG. I believe they do better in the long term (at standard temperatures that is).

The reason for my logic is that...

Re: 4700uF 6.3v and 3300uF 16v in a 10mm Diameter

I think SMG is overall superior to KMG for general purpose applications. True, SMG is 85c and KMG is 105c, but IIRC, SMG is 2000h @ 85c while KMG is 1000h @ 105c. I use SMG in wall warts where I...

Re: Panasonic FC series - leaking? quality gone?

Huh, PM? PW is supposed to be a miniaturized analog of PM.... That's not very reassuring. Don't they both use the same non-aqueous electrolyte?

It would be nice to use only LXZ, but NCC caps...

I would certainly not use old OS-CON caps. They do in fact deteriorate. Just open it up and see for yourself. The polymer dielectric should be a moist, glossy black but you will often find in old...
