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

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...

oh but tv picture tubes are deadly so how to discharge its capacitor. thanks in advance

You can search on the internet, but the safest way it to take an insulated screwdriver and short out the negative and the positive wires.

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