Let's Make Robots!



Recently I have tried to make one of these: http://www.instructables.com/id/Portable-USB-Charger-Version-2.0/

but after I collected all the parts I realized I had the wrong capacitor.

I need a 100uf  50v one but dont have one. So my question is: can I use another one or connect some in series to replace this one?

I posses 100uf 16v ones, 33 uf 35v, 100uf 10v, 150uf 35v and 400v 3.3uf, could any of these replace that one?

I would thank any help.



by the way the guys at instructables wont tell me so I ask here.

Dont worry its all right, and thank you for your help and time.


It says "100 UF Electrolytic Capacitor 10-50v", In which case 16v will probably be fine :)

Edit: (Just reading what it says, don't blame me if it's wrong ;) )
