Introduction: How I Organize My Electrolytic Capacitor Collection

I have 3 categories that I organize them by voltage:

0-10 VOLTS

11-99 VOLTS

100+ VOLTS

If you want to see more of these kinds of projects make sure to check out my instructables page and subscribe :)

Step 1: 0-10 VOLTS

Step 2: 11-99 VOLTS

Step 3: 100+ VOLTS

    what devices use caps with higher voltage?

    Printers, TV's, Phone Chargers (If they have them they are usually on the input), Computers. Basically most devices that plug in to a wall...

    If you're looking for a big capacitor (voltage and capacity) the biggest ones are in CRT Tv's
