Electronic – use a 4.7uf 50v in place of a 4.7uf 25v


I am rebuilding an audio regulator board on an old school video game. Its a donkey Kong junior coin op to be exact.

My question is….will a 4.7uf 50v work in place of a 4.7uf 25v?

Best Answer

Yes. Just don't go below 25v. The 4.7uF is an "exact" value, whereas the 25v is a maximum rating.
