Hi all,

What is the best powerfix solution for Kipper cards (A600 V2)?

I have read several things and the Majsta website comments 220uf in parallel to c3-c6 or 22uf replacing c3-c6, is that correct ?, which one is better?

Thank you!

*so sorry if this was discussed before...

Please never replace but "add".
 
If you have "0805" 22uf and feel safe and able to solder them,
then I would "stack" them on the existing C3-C6.

Stack 2x 22uf in addition will make a difference.

Please do this only if you are experienced in soldering.

Hi Gunnar,
 
  I don't have 0805 capacitors. So is correct to add two 22uf electrolytic in parallel?
 
  Many thanks in advance.

If you use ceramic 0805 - then 22uf is good.

If you have only electrolyte then I would propose to go higher value.
