Sunking Cap Voltages
« on: December 05, 2010, 07:29:37 PM »
I ordered all 50v film caps and 16v electrolytics. Am I going to be okay or am I asking for trouble?

Thanks!

I'll take silence to mean, "25v or better, dummy."

Got it ;)

Sorry! I remember reading this and meant to reply!

Yes, you need 25v or better caps in the sunking. The charge pump raises the voltage to ~18v, so the 16v would be too small.
