That cap looks exactly like a Teapo with a different logo

Thanks for the quick detective work chozo4. I had seen the Kemet ESC pdf sheet, but I guess I gave up to soon. Normally I'm more diligent/successful.

Oh well, my panny fC was a good match.
With your info I found another pdf for acrotronics ESC with their logo actually printed in the datasheet . Screen capture in Pic #2 below .
As well I added a pic of the ends of my flaky AVs for any one else looking for these AV guys.

How do they get AV out of Arcotronics?
Cheers

That was the first thing that came to mind and made absolutely no sense whatsoever. The only thing I can figure is that it's actually AT without the top of the T and slanted off the bottom end of the A. *Shrug* It's a longshot but it's the only possible idea i could come up with.

I have an air compressor with a XUFENG brand capacitor. Are they generally good?

The majority of capacitors made with chinese brands like that are normally as far from good as possible. Reason they are used a lot is because they are so cheaply/crappily made. Long as they show no signs of failure they should be fine but they don't have to show signs of failure to have failed.

There is a stickied thread regarding good capacitor brands and so forth. May be helpful if you're questionable about brands.

It depends too on what the capacitor is doing in the circuit. A lot of the 'average grade' ones will work fine for a very long time in low stress applications.

However, in places where they are exposed to more heat, tougher circuits etc, only the decent quality ones (read: Japanese) seem to last any sensible length of time.

^ True. It also depends a lot on the ambient temperature and the effectiveness of the cooling. I've seen decoupling caps fail because of a combination of poor cooling, lots of dust, and high temperature operation

Anyone know or can figure out the brand of these 1800uf 6.3v from the infamous Dell Optiplex GX270 series? (Gold color stripe of leftmost is most correct. #2 is miscolored darker and redder due to incandescent lighting dominating the direction the gold faces.)

Looks like Panasonic to me. Are the vents shaped kind of like a "T" ?

Those would be genuine Panasonic caps, assuming they were removed from a GX270. Panny are normally very reliable, but GX270s often cook them, so I would probably replace them

The M with the legs slightly bent at the bottom, in a square with rounded corner is the logo for Panasonic ( from Matsushita, the old company name).

FL is a series Panasonic had (or still has). The purpose, dark red text is a batch number, it's a code that meaningful just to the factory that made the capacitor.

You'll probably have a hard time finding the datasheet for FL series, simply because it's somewhat of a custom series sold only to companies like Dell, not sold on retail channels.
I suspect it has similar specs to Panasonic FJ, another custom series from there, for which the datasheet can be found here.

I've seen an abundance of these leaking and/or swollen in Dells shipped in 2003 & 2004, many of which would still boot even with 3 or more of 8 or more obviously gone bad. Is it known if this particular Matsushita type was ever counterfeited and installed in new Dells, if Matsushita made lots of bad ones, or if Matsushita had many (or all or most) of this model actually made by other manufacturers who may have been using defective electrolyte?

The problem is not the capacitors, the problem is Dell, for putting them in a design that runs far too hot for them to survive.

I've seen Vemco units in a 1982 Urmet videophone unit - anyone know Vemco?

I've seen a lot of these "SS" caps. All of them have been 5mm or 7mm tall and various colors. The one in the pictures came from a CD-ROM drive manufactured in late 1998, but I've started to see them recently in some Arduino stuff. I know of some cap manufacturers that have an SS series, but those companies would put their brand name on them and would not use that series name for multiple heights of these miniature caps. They may be related to this brand since I've seen a mixture of both brands (if they're even made by different companies) in some devices and they use the same date code format.

Here is 3 elyt capacitors 16V 22uF (4x8) with brand <BH> without series type. I foud, that is chinese Guangdong Jiahong Electronic Technology Co., Ltd product series BH,class CD110X.
http://e-cap.en.gongchang.com/product - BH-CD100X i found in datasheets archchive, actually it is possibly discontinued series.

But there is also one unknown black elyt capacitor - i canīt find brand and series.
16V,220uF,105°. (measured size 8,3x9,3)
Top of the temperature record is just a brand(?) "S.I." (or "S.1."?? or "S.l"??)
No other printed decription here.
What is it?Exist any datasheet for this?
btw, this <BH> caps seem tho be kinda durable actually, if found its in old Sanyo audio equipment ( probably 1995 era ) its shown slightly bulge on one cap but still works with good esr value

Maybe it's tricking your meter? Also looks like it might be starting to lift itself off of the board too, have you pulled the cap to see if the bung is starting to pop out? I too have seen BH caps hold up decently well,even in hot PSUs
