I love the fact that these capacitors do not obstruct the areas the case needs to close nice and tight. Other kits such as regular capacitors can be tricky to snip to the right lengths and properly solder.
These ceramic capacitors are incredibly small so a steady hand and proper equipment makes it much easier to get the job done.
One issue is the capacitors do not have any indication of farad so make sure you do not mix them up!
I snagged an old blue sport edition GG from a flea market. Poor thing needed new caps. This did the trick. Game Gear is up and running again.
While these are small enough and compact, they do not have the same properties as the former caps do. This is especially evident in the sound board. The sound quality is not the same as the electrolytic caps help produce. Even though its more trouble, stick with the all electrolytic cap replacement kits.
I bought the capacitor kit for a gamegear. I have used other retailers in the past and the caps were wrong, mislabeled and overall a pain to deal with. The caps I got from this site are packaged well, labeled for easy use, and a small form factor that makes it really easy to solder in.
Very good capacitor kit. Easy to fit and manipulate in the game gear, clear instructions, and great value with shipping to Canada. Have recommended to many others.
The 3 electrolytic caps for the power supply in the kit where cheap Chinese Chang brand. 2 of the there where bad right out of the bag.
