Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

When you're trying to wick lead free solder from a small circumference , narrow wick is a must. I can get away with 0.075" wick in a pinch, but it's much easier with 0.050". This is of course the...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

So do I. I guess you have a fancypants iron with the expensive tips. The $6 one I got from China (Which works fantastically) has a relatively blunt tip (Thing is very durable though, I don't think...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

.05 is essential for for clearing motherboard cap holes. .075 sinks away too much heat... I'd like to get my hands on some .035 and see if that is an improvement even over .050. Digikey is...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

I don't want to invest in a large spool because I use the 0.5~mm for logic boards and tight spaces and the wider stuff for regular applications. So I'd have to buy two spools. The 5ft spools keep...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

They've got plenty of NOS, thing is, even Chinese sellers with legitimate stock will deceive the buyers after gaining their trust, because that is their way of doing business. We still ought to be...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

This is a gross overreaction. There's enough NOS out there to last for years and years.

Suncon is a Japanese company, not Chinese. Suncon caps are great, but they don't make anything with a...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

Fascinating...

I'm not surprised with KZG and YXG/YXH. KZG is known to use an inadequate electrolyte and YXG/YXH have a mediocre spec. I'm curious about KZH but I'm seriously puzzled with HD...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

Motherboard grade caps and regular low-ESR caps are in two completely different classes.

Ultra low-ESR caps have a unique electrolyte, there's probably some really expensive element in it that...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

You're right, I just pulled the spec sheet off their site.

It's very close to Nichicon HE:

6.3v 2200uF 10x25mm
Nichicon PA:1680 0.033
Nichicon HE:1650 0.042

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

Pete, are you sure you are recalling the results of your tests correctly??? HD should be precisely equal in spec to ZL, KZE and FM... I am very surprised at what you're saying. Are you suggesting...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

No, HV is miniaturized HD, so it's equivalent to Panasonic FR series. And I don't think I've ever seen it stocked anywhere...

Re: Nichicon HM/HN/HZ scheduled for discontinuation

People don't buy PCs anymore... When they do, it's either bottom of the barrel stuff they would never get repaired, or really high end stuff that uses good polymers. We'll have to rely on shady...
