    I know it is a .033uf cap, but nothing about voltage. Would be nice if 611V was it, but I seriously doubt it.

    Thanks

    I researched this capacitor and according to my findings this is a 270 picofarad ceramic capacitor that is rated to 200 WVDC.

    I looked this up at www.avx.com. I found it in their CK05/CKR05 series. The number 0327 is not the capacitance but rather a number in the CK05/CKR05 series assigned to the 270 pF/200V capacitor.

    0 3 27
    maybe it means; 0. 000 27
    just guessing?

    I have a heap of those injection molded caps, and they usually have writing on both sides, with the value written on the front (the back is shown above and has the injection mold ejector mark).

    I tested several of them. What would happen to the voltage output if I used a higher or lower uf capacitor in the voltage multiplying circuit below?
