How I Organize My Electrolytic Capacitor Collection

Introduction: How I Organize My Electrolytic Capacitor Collection

About: I've been making Instructables since I was 13. Now, I mostly make videos of my projects, however I'm still active here, so don't hesitate to reach out! Sick with a deadly disease called DIY-itis!

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

    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...

    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 find a television or any other electronic device, The capacitors voltage is probably already low if it has been unplugged for a couple minutes, but it isn't worth the risk of getting shocked...

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