Default Re: Fake Nichicons?


Thanks for your reply, I will take measurements and check them out. The weight difference worries me, but the weight came from a mouser page not an actual data sheet (couldn't find weights on the data sheets).

I'm inclined to believe the seller that he only buys from trusted sources. Just the weight bothers me ( I'm used to checking 18650 batteries for weight as it is a good indicator of authenticity).

Ok I checked the sizes for 4 different caps that he supplied me and the sizes are all spot on.

I haven't heard from nichicon and guess that I may not.
