## What is a 100uF capacitor?

Electrolytic decoupling capacitors 100uF/25V. These capacitors are great transient/surge suppressors. Attach one between the power and ground of your project to ensure smooth power delivery. High quality radial electrolytic capacitors.

### Can I replace a 25V capacitor with an 35V?

In general, going from 25V to 35V won’t cause you a problem as long as the above parameters are comparable. Once you start getting above 35V, you’ll find less and less high-performance capacitors available (the majority of low ESR parts tend to be 25V or lower).

#### Can I use a 50v capacitor instead of a 25V?

There are 2 Answers. Ideally, you should replace the capacitors with one that has the same nominal capacitance and maximum voltage rating. You can always use a higher rated Capacitor in a circuit that uses a lower rated Capacitor.

What does uF mean on capacitor?

uF refers to the size of the capacitor. Capacitance is the charge that is necessary to raise the potential of a body one unit. A capacitance of 1 farad (f) requires 1 coulomb of electricity to raise its potential 1 volt (v). 1 micro farad (uF) = 0.0000001 F.

Can I use a 35V capacitor instead of an 50v?

Yes, you can replace a 35v capacitor with a 50v or 63v or with any voltage rating that meets or exceeds the original. The only caveat is to make sure that the replacement capacitor will physically fit where the old cap was.

## Can I use 16v capacitor instead of 10V?

The 16 V capacitor will continue to behave like a capacitor. Above 16 V, neither capacitor can be trusted. Show activity on this post. Assuming (from the high capacitance) you are talking about polarized caps, then yes, both will behave pretty much the same below 10V.

### Can I use 16v capacitor instead of 50V?

Yes it is the capacitor’s voltage rating. Using a higher voltage rating capacitor has no effect. Yes, you can use the 50V version. The only difference will be bigger can size and a very slightly improved reliability which you won’t notice.

#### Can I use a 35V capacitor instead of an 50V?

What is 100uF?

100uF 25V Electrolytic Capacitor is a high quality electrolytic capacitor which offers long life and high reliability. Electrolytic Capacitors are most commonly used type of capacitors in Electronic Circuits. Electrolytic Capacitors have 2 Polars – Positive and Negative.

Can I replace capacitor with lower uF?

The rule of thumb is to select capacitors with voltage ratings higher than those expected in the circuit as a buffer. So, if you decide to replace a capacitor with a lower uf one, make sure that the new capacitor has the same voltage rating of the one you are replacing or is larger.

## Can I use a 35V capacitor instead of an 10V?

The short answer is yes you can. Now if the capacitor is an electrolytic, you should know that after some time operating at say 10V, that 35V rated capacitor, is no longer fit to operate at 35V as a result of a change in the insulating oxide thickness on each surface.

### Can I replace 16v capacitor with 25V?

The maximum voltage you can deal with is what the voltage rating is. Make sure you know what you are dealing with. If you use a 25v rated cap, never exceed 25V. Don’t exceed 16v for a 16v rated cap.
