    Are you chasing those big shiny cans down?

    Those are FP series type alum.electrolytic! I looked on Digi-key but couldn't find such precise values.

    But, who knows! You might be refering to a cap chip somewhere on that board too ;)

    Incorrect...

    The bottom value is the rated voltage, the three digit number above it is the value in uF...

    The FP stands for "Functional Polymer" Capacitor and they are Nichicon brand...

    560 uF @ 2.5V

    330 uF @ 6.3V

    Verify size before ordering...

    Height and diameter would be best... Just verify the new caps will land on the existing pads and fit in whatever housing the board goes into... The size is only relevant in regards to fitment, not function...
