What capacitance is a TO412 capacitor? Answered

it came from a disposable camera and has no informational markings. The camera's a few years old so I can't get any manufacture's info. The "o" could be a zero for all I know, and it also says "PET" below that.

Are you sure it's a capacitor and not a battery?

Look for a "uF" marking somewhere on it...

It's definitely a capacitor. I know what one looks like. Photos soon.

Why? It's not going to be much use if it is PET, unless you need a tiny cap' for something?

Could it be to 412? As in 'to 412 kF' or volts or what not?

No, there's no such thing as a "kilofarad."

.  Huh? That particular unit of measure is not used very often*, but it does exist.




*The only place I remember seeing it used is in textbooks.

OK, fine, a kilofarad does exist, but you'll never see it printed on the side of a single capacitor.

A photo might be useful if you have a camera. I get lots of hits for batteries when I google T0412.

Try to measure it ( some cheap multimeters) can do it.
