And here's a PDF datasheet for the things. They're not exactly small but it's a lot better than what I expected.

considering these are film caps i would say they are actually TINY !


i remeber seeing a project posted online some years ago where the power supply electrolytics were replaced with solen fast caps .

talk about HUGE !!! !

The cap box alone was bigger than most power amps and had to be mounted on the floor and this was for a line stage

As I was saying, it's a lot better than what I expected. I've seen a few 10uf 250V film caps in the loca surplus store and they were I'd guess 2-3 cubic inches in volume. You're right, these things are positively tiny in comparison.

ESR measured in mW.... I'm not encouraged...

I think something is wrong with the way your compute displays special characters (something with the font settings). Both the Electronic Product site and the datasheet show milli-ohms here. However, the letter "omega" is also the letter "W". For instance, if I cut the text from the posted sites and paste here: "offer a typical ESR from 5.0 to 14.0 mW and a current-ripple capability" you see the W (because it is converted to text as a head-fi message). Yet, on my computer both the posted sites show the symbol for ohms: omega...

from the datasheet:
"A lower in-place cost is achieved by using
ElectroFilm Capacitors, because 65% fewer capacitors
are generally needed when compared to aluminum
electrolytic capacitors for the same application."


Anyone know if this would hold true in the KGSS or Blue Hawaii power supply? Could make these quite an attractive alternative to Black Gates...

Hmm? The datasheet shows E.S.R. in miliohm @ 1kHz, the web page also uses miliohm, maybe your fonts aren't configured properly for the ohm symbol? The stats look good to me...

Looking at the HTML, I see the problem: they're using raw character codes instead of either symbolic names or Unicode character codes. This will only work if your system's fonts use the same character ordering as the page author's. Basically, it's a Windows-ism. Bleh.

FWIW, I see mW as well.

How much do they cost?
