    Capacitors

    How do you guys organize your capacitor stock? I’ve gotta do better but not sure what to do.

    I have done away with most, carry 5's, 7.5's, 10's, Turbo minis, Turbos, and a few that are left over. I got tires of having a shelf full of caps and still not the right one. If it is a warranty issue I will put on a Turbo to get them going and order the right one for warranty then put in in later.

    We install only amrad caps and charge a 49$ fee on top of service call for any warranty outside the first year. I never really ever dont have the right cap. I have literally every size i think even some 3&4 ufs, including some 3uf caps in dual caps. Also have a couple of turbos200s just in case and they have been rattling around for over a year.

    The Turbo's are great in certain applications but I saw many that were not exactly rated for what they were set up to be. Plus they should not be mounted upside down and I wouldn't even suggest to mount them sideways due to leakage.

    I don't bother organizing them anymore. It doesn't last.
