How high do tantalum capacitor values go ?

    This is a general query for all the posters on this
    forum. In your experience, what is the maximum value
    tantalum capacitor that you have used. I have been
    told that as tantalum is much more expensive and
    the processing costs are a lot higher, high value
    tantalum capacitors(e.g., 1000 uF) do not exist. Is
    this true ?

  4. Given enough reverse voltage/current I think you can launch pieces of 'em about 10 feet. :^)

    Ya, I though the size was limited to make the explosions smaller. ;-)

    I'm sorry. I apologize for my previous post.
    Your reaction to the ops post is irrational and
    is not something that should be made fun of.
    You need to stay on your meds at all times.
    There are boxes made with alarms to remind you when
    to take your next dose. They are well within your budget.
    I'll see if I can find a link for you.
    Oh wait, you know about Google.

    Just wanted to point out that they exist. I never used one and most
    likely never will since my experience with tantalum caps in general has
    been less than great.

    ** It was completely rational - you fucking shithead.

    Shame you are such a total mental retard ( ie autistic narcissist ) you
    cannot see the clear reasoning behind it.

    I think largest I've seen is 220uF (6.3V or 10V rated) inside an oldish
    laptop (~2000). Aluminum polymer are also very popular these days (I have
    a dead video card from 2006 with them, plus tants, plus discretes down
    to... 0402, maybe 0201, I forget).

    Large values are essentially useless anyway as the power supply is poorly
    made if it can't supply power fast enough to compensate.
