Tantalum radial bead capacitors 16v 150uF T16-150

SKU: T16-150
  • Tantalum Radial Bead Capacitor

    Working voltage : 16v 

    Nominal capacitance value 150uF 

    Tolerance 20% or better

    General rule about tantalum beads. If the capacitor has leads of unequal length the the longest one is usually positive  +Ve.

    Otherwise if they have the same lead length with the capcitor legs downward and the markings facing you, the lead on the right hand side is positive +Ve

  • Tantalum capacitors are a subtype of electrolytic capacitors. ... The use of tantalum allows for a very thin dielectric layer. This results in a higher capacitance value per volume, superior frequency characteristics compared to many other types of capacitors and excellent stability over time. Together with a lower leakage current than most electrolytic capacitors giving you longer periods in timing circuits etc.
