Is Kemet a good capacitor brand?

Kemet are good quality parts. Probably roughly on par with most of the “good” brands @restorer-john mentioned, or others like CDE.

Are bojack capacitors any good?

5.0 out of 5 starsGreat kit! Great little kit and the caps are all good quality. Only thing is I wish they had more 0.1 uF caps for decoupling.

What are the most reliable capacitors?

Class 1 ceramic capacitors offer the highest stability and lowest losses. They have high tolerance and accuracy and are more stable with changes in voltage and temperature. Class 1 capacitors are suitable for use as oscillators, filters, and demanding audio applications.

Are Panasonic capacitors any good?

Standard capacitors (like Sprague) still good choice for standard audio devices. It sounds better than inadequate low ESR capacitors. This test confirms good reputation of Panasonic FC. It is the best no-audio grade capacitors.

Can capacitors save electricity?

The capacitor stores (otherwise lost energy/watts) and releases energy to your motor when needed to function properly. This reduces the amount of heat on the wires and the motors in your home or business. Reducing this heat will lower your electricity bill and increase the life of your motors.

Are there any high-quality capacitors for power supplies?

Besides Japanese manufacturers there are also several US and European vendors that make high-quality capacitors. Probably we won’t meet any of the below cap brands inside a consumer grade PSU, at least their electrolytic offerings, but we decided that it still worth mentioning them.

These third-tier capacitors, according to information from various PSU manufacturers and people with knowledge of RMA statistics, along with our own experiences with caps, might not be among the best choices, but are still a grade above the caps that belong to the last category. This group includes the rest of the capacitor brands.

Why choose Japanese capacitors for your PSU?

When it comes to electrolytic caps, since they are hugely affected by increased temperatures caused by heat build-up at the PSU’s internals (but mostly by current ripple), the caps made by Japanese manufacturers are the safest and highest-quality choice. This is also why Japanese capacitors are always preferred.

How to choose a good cap manufacturer?

In addition, as with most products, all cap manufacturers have a portfolio that includes products with differences in performance and expected lifetime. So besides a good manufacturer, you also have to choose caps from the suitable product family with the desired technical specifications for the corresponding application.
