I generally buy my caps from Joes. I've never had a sub and shipments have always been very quick. Shipping is also very reasonable, not inflated.

I have a few questions on CapS. I have Electrolitic (sp) with the + and - Marked, Ceramic (round), and some "orange drop" caps. When do I use which type? I think the electrolitic are used in power supplys, but are they used elsewhere? Are the "Orange Drop" and Titanium caps one and the same? When would I use one over the other?

Electrolytics are a yes in power supplies as filters.

Orange drops are a very good reliable general replacement cap for paper types.

(Tantalum caps are opined by some to be unreliable), but I worked for the Navy and generally that's all we used because of being so reliable and compact. Very heavy for thier tiny size, used manly in solid state circuits.
