    Hey guys just wanted to ask a quick question. When making an electronic circuit does it matter that my full bridge rectifier is rated for 1000v when I'm only using 30v max? Its also rated for 2A, but I'm probably only using 300mAh

    These 2w10 rectifiers are the cheapest so I used them, just wanted to make sure there aren't any negatives to using 1000v for a 30v device. There is a 2w005 full bridge rectifier that is rate for 50v but they are more expensive.

    Can someone explain if there would be problems here

    and that's 300mA not 300mAh
