Default Re: Looking for replacement for Nichicon VT caps

Nichicon is Japanese.

The BT replacement for VT is 125c and made for automotive applications.
I think BT is just the lead free replacement for the old VT series.

Nichicon also has a 135c automotive series 'BW ' and a 150c automotive series 'BX'.

The bungs in caps built for automotive service are probably more resistant to damage from oil and so forth.
