Hey Ian,

Define cheap ;)

Here for example:

Forgive my question, but do you have any experience with repairing power supplies and such? These things can be quite harmful to your health if handled incorrectly. (Just making sure... better safe than sorry ;D )

In my experience the tantalum capacitors like to explode ;)
These are 10mf caps.

In case ask ebay ?
