So... how do I tell whether the capacitors I've put in there are low or
high ESR? Are there particular markings I should be watching out for?
I just bought these from the local electronics shop, I had no idea there
was anything to look out for aside from voltage & capacitance. Guess I
shouldn't assume these things :).
