    It says "general home and shop use" on box. I am about quality so I would like to buy a good one without overkill.

    those caps are marked negative & positive with the negative side having a band down 1 side. along that band is some number values such as 2200 uf & 16v. what are the values of those caps that have leaked?

    I will check there in the next couple of days. I think I am too busy tomorrow.

    Dual monitors is great right now so I can watch the super bowl while I type this.
