    i have a torch which is not working anymore. It is rechargeable through 220V ac. i opened the torch to see whats wrong and found a rectifier circuit with blown up capacitor. There is no value written on it. Is there any way i could replace the cap or know its value? I've attached some images along.

    First guess: Look for an X2 275VAC capacitor that matches the size of the original.
