Even if Würth was a good manufacturer in other products, (like coils, film capacitors, etc) that does not always mean they will be good manufacturer in electrolytic capacitors. I think Samsung manufactured their own electrolytic capacitors at one point (They may still be doing it under a different name) and they were mostly crap. (from what i know at least) Some of their older capacitors would also short themselves out. IIRC Philips also manufactured some not very good electrolytic capacitors.

I re-use many of the Samsung caps I have, they were among the better ones.

It is believed the fab is now Sam Young.

I don't even know what that is, frankly.

But there is very little companies who actually care about the quality of what they sell even if that means not selling at all, like me. Absolute majority has just what sells, with no questions about quality.

That's how you get line CCA power extenders and power cords on the market. Heard it was already spotted here in CZ.

Würth does Relabel jobs like their Hammer Drills - they look Identical to the Blue Bosch ones. Wich isn't bad at all, quite the opposite...

In Terms of Parts, there is barely anything you can not get from Würth. From "Dübel" over screws to inductors and now parts. But never is Würth the best of the best but rather somewhat decent to good stuff...

So I'd not worry that much with the capacitors.
And also they are easily obtainable. Every half way decent parts shop has (some) Würth parts...

I haven't tried it yet, but I know some companys here tend to use Würth parts...
