This 100uf 40V DC Electrolytic Capacitor is designed with high reliability and long life (2000 hrs). It also features a high ripple current at high frequency and excellent smoothing ability. These electrolytic capacitors offer a wide range of applications in the field of Power Supply, Audio Amplifiers, Hobby projects, etc. An electrolytic capacitor is defined as a type of capacitor that functions using an electrolyte. This achieves a larger capacitance than other capacitor types. These capacitors are generally used in DC power supply circuits due to their large capacitance. And small size to help reduce the ripple voltage or for coupling and decoupling applications
An electrolyte is essentially a liquid or gel containing a high concentration of ions. Most of the electrolytic capacitors are polarized, hence used only in DC circuits. This indicates that the voltage on the positive terminal should be greater than the voltage on the negative terminal. These electrolytic capacitors exist as either wet-electrolyte or solid polymer commonly made from tantalum or aluminium, although other materials could also be used. This 100uf 40V Caps DC electrolytic is made from Aluminium electrolytic capacitors, found in many applications like power supplies, computer motherboards and lots of domestic appliances.
