15v Aquaboy Deluxe - will 25v caps work?
« on: November 07, 2014, 03:02:35 PM »
I was going to do this at 15v, and I just got around to pulling caps out of the boxes, and realized most of my stock is 25v.  Will that work?  I had seen the suggestion about being double the operating voltage and wasn't sure.

Thanks,
Pat
I thought this would save me money.

That's fine, means the caps can take 25Vs before they die and you're only hitting them with 15, the double rating part is just to give some safety margin as a rule of thumb.
