Capacitors are passive devices that are used in almost all electrical circuits for rectification, coupling and tuning. Also known as condensers, a capacitor is simply two electrical conductors separated by an insulating layer called a dielectric. The conductors are usually thin layers of aluminum foil, while the dielectric can be made up of many materials including paper, mylar, polypropylene, ceramic, mica, and even air. Electrolytic capacitors have a dielectric of aluminum oxide which is formed through the application of voltage after the capacitor is assembled. Characteristics of different capacitors are determined by not only the material used for the conductors and dielectric, but also by the thickness and physical spacing of the components.

Capacitor - 400V, 716P Series, Polypropylene
High performance version of the popular 715P series. They are made from polypropylene film and foil with pure copper leads, making them ideal for high pulse current applications. Rated for 85 degrees celsius operation ± 5% tolerance. Straight radial leads, minimum 1.25" length.
Starting at $1.25
Capacitor - Mallory, 400V, 150s, Axial Lead
Mallory axial capacitors rated for 400V. The available values are smaller in size than the 630V versions for builds where less space is available. These are also a great choice for use as guitar tone capacitors over the larger 630V versions. The Type 150 series axial lead metallized polyester non inductive capacitors are available in bulk or on tape and reel for automatic insertion. Type 150 is a general purpose capacitor for use in blocking, bypass, decoupling, smoothing and some timing applications. Features
- Epoxy end fill meets UL94V-0
- Non inductively wound
- Flame retardant outer wrap meets UL510
- Non polar
