Default Power Capacitor

I'm looking for a 4700uF 10V power capacitor for a Novak GTB. Tried my local Dick Smith here in Orange and Jaycar in Bathurst but to no avail. Can anyone assist? Cheers.

We do 10v 4700uf caps. (They're the same caps we use on the MRT speedys). The 10v caps charge and discharge quicker and are significantly more expensive than the 16v versions.

PM me for details.

I am running a hawk reverse so i had to had a 4700uf 10v cap plugged into my reciever to supply the extra 1.2v as the ESC only puts out 4.8v and the servo is 6v

You could use a 6800uF 16v, Dick Smith usually have them.

Yes. As I mentioned, caps rated at a lower voltage will charge and discharge quicker than higher volt caps. You need it to be higher than 7.2ish volts (obviously, otherwise it'd go pop) - so 10volt is preferable if you can get them. Of course 16volt works just fine too, and are orders of magnitude cheaper than the 10v caps for some reason.

Thanks for the responses everyone. Scott, I will place an order shortly for one from you but will wait a couple of weeks and include it with my next purchase. In the interim, I have a 6800uF 10V from a long deceased Novak Cyclone TC2. Could that be used without causing too many issues?

Hiya,

The 6800uf 10v cap will be ideal.

If it were me, I wouldn't bother buying a new one, just use the one you have. Save some cash.
