Hi haxby,

this has been discussed elsewhere on another thread. I believe oztules was a contributor. The caps are back to back 470uF@180WV giving an effective 230uF non polarised equivalent. These are 25mm x 35mm cans, with high ripple rating. I checked for heating, none!

Use at least a x5 system voltage rating on the caps.

Good luck with your testing.
