    One of my Leatek Winfast GeForce 4200 TI A250LE MyVIVO capacitor is "pregnent" so i have to change it.

    The original capacitor is
    1000uf
    6.3v
    GSC
    RE105c


    now the problem is which capacitor is better?
    Sanyo or Rubycon? both have the same spec..


    *BTW does capacitors have ampree? :grr:

    One of the spec items will be ripple current rating, higher is better. But physical size may be the decider.

    Both makes are well known and of good quality, so either would be fine. Higher ripple current rating is better.

    No, it means one may be too big to fit in the space available.

    I got a bunch of rubycon photoflash capacitors.... good for making big bangs. Other assorted brands also, but Rubycon seemed pretty popular with disposable camera manufacturers. :lol:
