Weird capacitor marking?

Post by Steve » Fri Jan 15, 2021 4:38 pm

Hey guys,

Could someone help me read this capacitor, I haven't come across it before. It's 'u' with a little line above, with 1 next to it. But then it has 100, 6v...

100uf 6V probably.. other markings might just be manufacture ID's or something.. if you look at some SMT caps which are similar you may find out what it all means. All my hardware guides - mods - games - STOS - All my hardware mods for sale - Please help support by making a purchase.

I'd say 100uF 6V. I'd have more doubts about the bigger one.

I've got one marked as:
70T <- date code
100 <- capacitance
6V <- voltage rating
and these are 100uF/6V.
