    Not sure where you are located, but Mouser (in the US) has a ton of them.....

    I wish there was a good schematic for DE power supplies. I would have thought it was .1uF which is this:

    I've heard that there are now electronic parts suppliers in the UK.

    Yes, but the OP isn't from the UK.

    Runcorn? Maybe there's more than one place called that?
    Just did a quick google on it.

    I'll stop looking on UK electronics sites for a link then since everyone else seems to have it sewn up here.

    Yes, in Australia.

    That was my 2nd choice based on the flag shown.

    Still..... shipping from Great Plains a cheapie part to Australia, how long is that going to take? I see from another cursory search that Mouser has a branch there wouldn't it make sense to source it from the place that makes sense in terms of time/cost?

    Farnell ("Element 14" in Aus.) is one of my "go to" places for parts of all kinds; they have warehouses in the US, UK, Aus, and probably elsewhere and ship very quickly (at least in the U.S.).

    Yeah... shipping to Australia has become ridiculously expensive. He'd be much, much better off with an Australian source.
    I've always wondered - does Mouser or Digikey have distribution centers in Australia or any other countries?
    Based on Thermionic's post - seems that Farnell does.

    Not sure if they are actually there or not, but they have a web page

    Digikey also has them, Marcos has them too, it is a pretty common part. I just got a few myself actually from Mouser.

    This is WAY higher voltage rating than you need but will work perfectly:

    This one would also work perfectly but may not fit physically (still a higher voltage rating but OK for your purpose):
    https://www.jaycar.com.au/10nf-630vdc-polyester-capacitor/p/RG5201

    FYI - 0.01uf = 10nf = 103
    These are all identical just different ways to mark parts.

    For other posters, Runcorn is a suburb of Brisbane Queensland Australia.

    4000 miles or 9000 miles, it's aboot the same distance when dealing with large oceans. I've heard that capacitors are available in Australia as both Ainsworth and Aristocrat, who make a ton of slot machines (OK, they call them Pokies) and they manufacture and stuff their own circuit boards with everything, including capacitors. No need to source from the USA. Heck China and Japan are pretty close.

    www. alibaba.com has them

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll grab one from my local Jaycar and go from there. Again thanks for the help.
