Default Re: The GOOD Capacitors Thread!!

I'd consider Elna a maybe. IMO, Nichicon, United (Nippon) Chemicon, Rubycon, and Panasonic/Matsushita are the top tier miniature lytic mfrs. And Sanyo for their OSCONs (I haven't used their lytics). Elna, Illinois Capacitor, and maybe Teapo would be second tier. The rest of the usual suspects are scary except in really low stress applications.
