    Hi, I have a capacitor here that is all red with markings Y5S,01Z and 25V. I was wondering :

    1- what's the code for this one ?

    2- There is a dot on one side. Does it mean it is polarized ?

    Thanks

    Wow, I was going to upload a similar file, but yours mozikluv makes mine look like pre-school!

    2- There is a dot on one side. Does it mean it is polarized ?

    In the UK polarised capacitors are identified by a thick line next to the negative terminal. I'm not sure if the dot signifies a similar thing.
